C. Lyn Erickson: Federal government’s drought relief not a ‘gift’

February 22, 2014 

President Barack Obama was in California on official business. He was working for us.

Some of his observations of conditions that are being addressed by federal funds might be required by law. He was elected to take care of our business, not to hold our hands.

He didn’t bring any gifts either. That was our money.
