King losing more support

Letter to Newsday 6/15/05

Getting off the Peter King Train

Is Peter King really "The man for the job" [Editorial, June 10]? Although it would be a good idea to have as the chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security a person who has New York's interest at heart, Peter King is not he.
I base this statement on the fact of his endorsement of and his voting for the Bush administration's prescription-drug plan. If King can turn his back on his elderly constituents when it comes to choosing between corporate greed and eldercare, how can we think he would support the interests of New Yorkers in anything? I voted for him every time he ran because he hadn't sold the seniors of New York out yet. But because he has shown to whom his loyalty really lies, I can no longer back him.
