Letter: He’s kidding, right?

In “Shrink government to shrink corporate welfare” (Sunday Monitor Viewpoints, March 31), Grant Bosse argues that corporate welfare will dissolve with less regulation. As my 4-year-old grandson says, “Are you kidding me?!”

Lockheed would be tickled to exchange government subsidies for Sen. Kelly Ayotte’s pet peeve, “the missile to nowhere,” for less regulation of its entire production line.

Democracy is so slow at getting it right that we tend to forget it took us more than 200 years to get where we are now: man on the moon, wireless and streaming, Instagram.

Grant, take the advice of the Beatles in their song, “Let It Be.” The priorities are being rearranged as we speak. When the shorelines and icebergs begin disappearing, we will get the message. Then you will see regulation like none other we have had in the past.

Strange letter. NH just finished a big project at Hampton Beach. Are you saying they should have put the $40 million bath houses and Clamshell in Pittsfield?
