House tea party members are doing what voters elected them to do

Your recent editorial on Congress and the federal budget was typical of The Sun blasting the GOP ("Budget battle rejoined," Sept. 12).

President Obama hasn't yet proposed a single balanced budget, nor has he proposed one item of the Bowles-Simpson task force. But he gets no blame whatsoever.

The tea party representatives in Congress were voted in by their constituents, just like the socialists in Maryland. So they too have to be in tune with their voters, whether you like it or not.

In the future, please look at both sides of the discussion.
