As a Christian, a taxpayer and a veteran who still fights to protect our Constitution, I am tired of our local typical politicians. The failures of state Rep. Tim Krieger, R-Delmont, who claims to be a protector of the Constitution and a fiscal conservative, continue at the expense of taxpayers.

His new “anonymous lawsuit” bill will strip concerned citizens of their protections and rights, while costing taxpayers more in lawsuits. His “Corbett” budget votes have already stripped our children of education and health-care funding, and his new law would no longer protect a child's name in a lawsuit or their parents' names. For someone who is a lawyer, he fails to see the unconstitutionality of his own bill. If he wants openness, let's look at his record.

In almost six years, he has yet to pass a single bill of his own. Not one! Here's a list of what he has done: one less jail for criminals, which lost jobs for hardworking local families; higher unemployment; watered-down education; a blank check for Gov. Corbett — and, like President Obama, he wants government to tell women and families what health-care decisions to follow.
