While there may be a political divide in America, few people would disagree there is trouble in this country, and like many, Dr. Milton Wolf knows something needs to be done.
Wolf, who is running against incumbent U.S. Senator Pat Roberts in the Aug. 5 primary, was in Liberal Wednesday to discuss his views on what needs to be done in the nations capital.
Many people have made the race out to be an attack on Roberts, but Wolf said this was never his intent of running.
I have voted for Pat Roberts for about as long as I can remember, he said. I think he may be part of the problem. Hes been in Washington for too long. Hes been in Washington 47 years. I dont think anyone should be in Washington for 47 years. Something happens when you go to Washington and stay too long. I think you forget why you went there, who youre supposed to represent, what you used to believe in.
Wolf did say, however, Roberts has crossed party lines many times in recent years, and he likewise sees this as a problem.
Roberts has voted to raise our debt ceiling 11 times, he said. When he first got to Washington, the debt was around $340 billion. Today, its $17.5 trillion, racing toward $18 trillion. Thats a threat to our childrens future. Its the defining challenge to our lifetime, and we need to solve this. When a nation spends trillions of dollars that are yet to be earned by generating even more, its no longer just a spending crisis. Its not just an economic crisis. Its a moral crisis.

Hope he has a spanish translater for Dodge and Garden cities.
Not according to Roberts's campaign ads. According to them Wolf has voted once since 1996.
I believe Liberal voted for Goldwater in 1964, but KS as a whole went “all the way with LBJ” and Dole for the U.S. House.
