Let's get government off our backs!

A veteran returning from Korea went to college on the GI Bill; bought his house with an FHA loan; saw his kids born in a VA hospital; got electricity from the TVA, and later water from an EPA project. His parents retired to a farm on Social Security, got electricity from REA and soil testing from USDA. When his father was laid off and his mother became ill, the family was saved from financial ruin by Medicare and another life in his family was saved with a drug developed by NIH. His children participated in the school lunch program, learned physics from teachers trained in a NSF program and went through college with guaranteed student loans. He drove to work on the Interstate and moored his boat in a channel dredged by Army engineers. When floods hit he took Amtrak to Washington, D.C. to apply for disaster relief, and then spent some time visiting the Library of Congress.

When he returned home he wrote a letter to his congressional representative demanding that the government get off of his back and stop raising his taxes to pay for all of those federal programs created for ungrateful people.
