In response to Usha Nariboli, I read your opinion, "Romney knows business, not government," on Oct. 14, with interest. You indicated that we the tax payers fund the government. You are 100 percent correct. It is our money, not the governments. But you need to remember they also establish the policy to spend the money. We currently have a government who is spending beyond the means of the people. They haven't voted in a budget since Barack Obama took office. (The Democratic Party held the house, senate, and the executive office for the first two years of Obama's presidency.) What is their excuse for not passing a budget? The Republicans didn't have the numbers to block anything in the first two years. Remember Obamacare? The stimulus?
