Letter: A Christmas present from Sen. Begich

Recently, on Alaska News Nightly, Sen. Mark Begich said he supported the federal budget. He said he was glad to see “Good funding for our military” but was not happy about declining money for veterans benefits. Not a peep about education, healthcare or transportation. It’s comforting to know that Sen. Begich and Alaska Democrats are in the spirit of giving to the poor military industrial complex as Alaska’s number one priority during this Christmas season. You gotta believe it’s what Jesus would do. What a clear choice voters will have between Democrat and Republican candidates when we next vote for Alaska’s senate seat. I, for one, am thankful that, as hard as they’ve tried, the two parties haven’t yet eliminated the third party candidates from running.
