Letter: Government for the people, not interests
I’m trying to understand why anyone who loves this country would vote for Mitt Romney and his party,
They have a reverse Robin Hood philosophy—take away from the poor and middle class and give to the rich and super-rich;
They are waging a war on women and women’s rights;
They want to slaughter Social Security, murder Medicare, make a mish-mash of Medicaid, and dismantle the only universal health care program we ever had;
They would even like to do away with bargaining rights for workers;
They have said they want to spend an unfunded 7 trillion-8 trillion dollars in tax cuts, unneeded military spending and thus balance the budget and cut the deficit; and,
They say they will manufacture 12 million jobs out of thin air!
I am going to vote to re-elect President Obama so that he can continue government for the people, by the people and of the people, not the vested interests, and continue getting us out of the mess he was left.
