LETTERS: Democrats fell because they were out of touch

In response to E.J. Dionne’s column (“Paying homage to Democrats who fell in ’10,” Dec. 24, Page 6A), his loyalists were out of touch with the American people. That’s why they lost the election. Their loyalty belonged to the American people, who elected them.

The good news is that ObamaCare is still up in the air. The big government takeover of food safety, student loans, the credit card industry, children’s health care and bank takeovers, among other things, shows that we need less government, not more.
