I totally disagree with Robert Recklein's letter “Toomey talk” (July 18 and TribLIVE.com). I have communicated with U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., several times about several different issues and find him a very thorough thinker and a very compassionate man.

He looks carefully at both sides of each issue before casting his vote. Every vote he casts is rendered with very good reason.

I firmly believe that he really cares about common citizens like us and about our welfare; he is not the kind of senator who only cares about big shots or about money flowing into his pocket. He casts votes with a clear conscience, not just wanting to go with the flow to please certain people or to make himself look good. He does what he thinks is right.

Toomey is my kind of senator and I stand by him.
