Skeletons in the closet

Dear Viewpoint: Democratic Congressional Party: Chairman: I would like know how you can justify downgrading the Republican Party when you have far worst skeletons in your closet?

We import almost all of the uranium used at our nuclear power facilities from overseas. In fact, Russia provides a full third of our supply. Considering the current tensions in our relations with Russia and their […]
