U.S. Rep. J.D.Hayworth, R-Ariz., spoke at the American Legion Hall Saturday. Hayworth told the audience that the U.S. needs to make reasonable increases in defense spending while saving Social Security and Medicare. He also talked about improving education by empowering people at the local level and providing tax relief for all Americans. "Whatever we decide to do with tax reform," Hayworth said. "we ought to look at it six ways from Sunday." In response to a number of complaints about the Veterans Administration, Hayworth told the audience, "Veterans who enlisted with certain promises of benefits should receive those benefits."
