ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Last week, Democratic National Committee Chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Florida Democrat, claimed congressional staff members were on the verge of starvation because of automatic budget cuts that recently went into effect (“Debbie Wasserman Schultz: Sequester nearly starving staffers,” Web, Friday). These federal employees can dine in one of several tax-subsidized cafeterias around Washington, and they earn $60,000 to $160,000 a year - three to seven times the income of an average family of four.

Ms. Wasserman Schultz should be made to watch film from World War II that shows Allied troops liberating the Nazi death camps in Eastern Europe. She would see footage of piles of dead, starved victims and trenches full of those who were literally worked to death.

I am 65 years old and can remember when the Democratic Party had class, character and morals. Over the past five years, the progressives like Ms. Wasserman Schultz have shown themselves to be arrogant and ignorant, as well as out of touch with the real world.
