After reading the July 11 "Our View" editorial, as I do every day, I began to think that some of our politicians are confused about their priorities. Instead of focusing on the economy, jobs or the deficit, they choose to focus on trivial things -- in this case, teen driving.

I find it highly ironic that a Republican in Congress, the type who usually calls for an end to "big government," would support a law that restricts teen drivers by imposing huge government laws upon them. Sure these laws in Illinois may have saved some lives, but as time has told in the case of Prohibition, young people will continue to break laws and disobey the rules.

Why can't we focus on more important things rather than restricting a section of our population that has no say or vote in our government?
