I believe that most people have heard about Pvt. Bergdahl and the trade for five Taliban leaders. Few have heard about Sgt. Tahmooressi. He is a soldier suffering from PTSD. He left a counseling session in San Diego and made a wrong turn and ended up in Mexico. He had weapons in his car and was arrested. He told the police, when stopped, that he had the weapons. He was placed in a Mexican prison awaiting trial.
Why can't our president, VP or secretary of state contact the president of Mexico and gain his release? We send $757 million to Mexico each year. This is money that we have to borrow. Cut off the money until he is released.
We hear that the economy is improving. In October 2011 gas was selling for $3.14 a gallon. A year earlier gas sold for $2.76. Has your wages or Social Security increased a similar amount?
