Reader responds to recent letter from Polizzi that criticizes governor

In her recent letter to the editor, Jan Polizzi rips Gov. Matt Blunt for introducing the notion of prudence to legislators, who, in their lust for votes, would pander to every plea for service without concern for solvency.

We’re supposed to accept her stats as proof that Blunt deserves her contempt? Profligacy — socialism? — has never provided lasting solutions. Witness the collapse of our national economy.
