Congress to blame for economy

The Opinion page article "Economy Needs More Than Anti-Recession Tinkering," Jan. 28, proves that politicians in Washington are still completely in the dark as to the main causes of this country's economic problems.

For example, the author, who is a congressman, states that "primary responsibility for getting us out of the recession lies with the Federal Reserve." Never mind that the primary responsibility for getting us into this mess in the first place lies almost completely with the big-spending Congress - with the complicity of a like-minded overregulating administration. The need to throw the rascals out becomes more convincing everyday. William Roberts, Laguna Beach, Calif.
