Letter: In response to 'Time to face constituents'

To the editor:

It is becoming tiresome to read Walt Zlotow's continued complaints about Congressman Roskam, I suspect Mr. Zlotow doesn't even know the congressman. Also, instead of citing any facts, Mr. Zlotow continues to use inflammatory language to denigrate all Republicans, and calling President Trump a "moral degenerate" is way over the top. Wasn't it President Obama who called for a more civil discourse? I would like to know what specifically Mr. Roskam has done to harm the "many thousand he has left behind"? Given the fact that the Democrats can't seem to get over the fact that they lost the 2016 election and seem intent on causing havoc wherever possible, I can understand why no Republican congressman would want to try to conduct a rational discussion with them. Maybe Congressman Roskam isn't perfect, but instead of simply making derogatory remarks, how about offering some constructive suggestions, or give us a break and stop merely complaining.
