Perhaps Cheri Bustos thought that the voters of the 17th District wouldn't pay any attention to her comments when she promised to return 10 percent of her salary to the taxpayers. But you can only fool the people and the press for so long, and then the truth will surface.
The recent release of the audio portion of an interview she gave while a candidate for Congress shows the true deceptive character of Rep. Bustos: I'll do anything, or say anything to get elected or reelected.
What may have started out as a throwaway campaign promise that she never intended to keep, is now morphing into a lie (after all, who's going to remember this two years from now?), and goes to the very crux of why so many citizens are cynical about our government.
This is not the first time that Rep. Bustos has shown contempt for her constituents. Remember, she hasn't held a single public town hall to interact with us. Perhaps she feels that she doesn't need to bother with farmers, machinists, and the over-taxed citizen who pays her salary.
Rep. Bustos, return the money or donate it to the Wounded Warriors since you voted to cut their benefits.
