Letter: Important questions
Republicans have the best political rhetoric! It’s all God, flag and apple pie. However, I notice that when Republicans are asked individual political questions, most agree with policies held by Democrats.
Do you want to see the Affordable Care Act fixed or repealed completely? If you want to repeal it completely, what will you replace it with?
Should we invest in infrastructure, creating tens of thousands of jobs? Or should we remain in austerity mode because Social Security is not fully funded beyond 2036?
Do you believe a woman has the right to control her whole body, or do you believe she is of no importance beyond her womb? Should IUDs and birth control be outlawed? Or should family planning be encouraged?
Do you believe a worker should not earn enough to support oneself (never mind a family) while big-box store execs rake in millions each year?
Do you believe “independent contract drillers” for big oil should continue to receive oil depletion allowances while senior citizens on Social Security have not received a “real” cost-of-living increase in several years?
It is not important whether one is registered Republican, Democrat or independent. What is important is what you believe.
