Urges Democrats to air budget plans

Political parties who aspire to lead this nation have an obligation to disclose their agenda before an election so the voters have a chance to consider, discuss and debate their positions. This is why the Democrats’ refusal to say how they would repeal President Bush’s tax cuts is so disappointing. For months, Democrats in the Senate have refused to pass a budget, have balked at taking the necessary measures to cut wasteful spending and now want to make the American people pay the bill by raising taxes.

Recently, Democrats called for an economic summit after the election, but won’t admit that their agenda is liberal tax and spend policies. This is highly irresponsible on their part. What are the Democrats hiding? If they’re planning to raise our taxes by repealing President Bush’s tax cut, then we have a right to know about it before the election.

Thankful for time on NN Council

My name is Christine Apache. I am from Alamo Reservation. I am Two Who Came to Water Clan. I want to express to my people here and on Alamo Navajo Reservation, it is and it was my honor to serve as Navajo Nation Council Delegate for my people. I am very proud of who I am because of the fact that I am the very first woman to ever hold office as council delegate from the Alamo Reservation.

I will miss the people here at Window Rock Arizona that I got acquainted with and worked with. You are good people. Maybe someday I will come back to your part of the world and work with you again.

I was married to an fill-blooded Eskimo, from Kotzebue, Alaska which is 29.9 miles from the Artic Circle. We had two beautiful Eskimo girls. I moved back to Alamo and married a Navajo who gave me four wonderful children two boys and two girls. All together I have four children and 20 grandchildren.

I’de like to extend my love to my son who named one of granddaughters, after me as Miss Christina Penny Monte. She will be a good leader one day. Thank yoi people for all your warm hearts.

Christine Apache,

Alamo, N.M.
