Tired of government spending — but beneficiaries of it too

US Representative Tim Huelskamp, Republican of Kansas, spoke to constituents at a town hall meeting last month. Huelskamp has proved so unwilling to compromise in Congress that fellow House Republicans removed him from committee assignments.

Too bad the nice folks in western Kansas — the ones who are “tired of out-of-control spending and government growth” — do not read The Boston Globe (“The land of resistance,” Page A1, April 4). Maybe they would ease up a little if they read at least to the 15th paragraph of Matt Viser’s article, to the fact that they enjoy federal agricultural subsidies, USDA meat inspectors, and federal aid to rural hospitals. That just might soften their antigovernment animus.
