Letter to the Editor: Those Blue and White Signs

In a recent letter to the Editor, regarding the “Vote for Democrats they vote for US” road-side signs, the writer asked what does that mean? What have Democrats done? 

In response, here are a few suggestions: Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, protecting women’s access to health care, reduction in prescription costs, affordable childcare, support for public schools, legislation to decrease gun violence, The Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare), protecting voting rights, legislation to fund investments in America’s infrastructure, investments to mitigate Climate Change, protecting the right to marry who you love, and proposals to increase tax fairness. 

Additionally, I have never heard of a Democrat-inspired movement to ban books, ban contraception, or condemn the American legal system.

The post-World War II Republican Party – the party of fair taxes, the interstate highway system, the integration of schools – has disappeared, and no longer has the interests of Americans at heart. They vote for themselves and their donors; not for US. 

Hope that answers the reader’s questions.
