Letter to the editor: How it should be

To the editor:

I say the Electoral College must go as it has attracted obscene amounts of campaign dollars and mountains of misinformation commercials. The Electoral College does not allow every vote to count.

I say we the voting taxpayers should decide on medical insurance coverage, not elected officials who accept money from the insurance industry for their campaigns. Not only is this corrupt, it increases the cost of coverage.

I say the courts should have no say in elections results. Voters must always have the final word. Elected officials are using the courts to bypass the voters.

I say no lifetime appointments ever.

I say term limits should be set at two years for appointed and elected officials approved by the voters.

I say no more retirement benefits for appointed or elected positions. Retirement benefits cost us taxpayers too much money and are obviously not based on performance.

I say no Congress can interfere with appointment process such as not bringing forward a candidate, aka Mitch McConnell’s tactic when Barack Obama was president.

Richard Heckler,
