Get real facts to find answers

Richard Geiger, in your Oct. 29 letter titled “Letter writer would impose views on others,” you seem to think Mr. Becker’s view of the Obama administration was influenced by the conservative regressive media. Then what comic book do you read to get your facts?

Our budget deficit has gone down under this administration? Is that like the unemployment rate, which they say is now 7.2 percent? Note: All the people that quit looking for work or who exhausted their unemployment benefits are no longer counted. Is this the same fuzzy statistics used in your outcome of the rosy budget?

I’m sure you also don’t believe that food stamp participation has increased 77 percent to 46.61 million users, or your health care costs have gone up 210 percent in the last 4 years. These facts are not found in liberal comic books.
