A millionaire’s son won’t fix my problems
To the editor:
Over the past few months, I’ve been doing some hard thinking about what the people I’ve voted for have really done for me these past few years. There’s been a lot of bad, and the “good” comes down to one measly tax cut. This tax cut isn’t going to fix my mortgage. It’s not going to pay for the loan debt that’s strangling young people. None of these healthcare laws change the E.R. bills where you $10 for a band aid or a cough drop. I don’t think our state politicians care to work on it because they haven’t worked on it. I don’t think our federal government cares to work on it because they haven’t worked on it. They get healthcare for life even though most of them are millionaires already. My “tax cut” doesn’t cover my health insurance premiums and the GOP is talking about cutting Medicare and Medicaid.
I know I’m not voting for Mr. Upton again. A millionaire’s son won’t fix my problems and I wish I’d seen it sooner. My family members have been pretty torn up about voting. I wish some of us had listened a little sooner. When you sit down and think about the things that matter, kids, my health, getting even a little money for retirement, it seems like they just don’t care. I know many of us were raised a certain way. I guess I’m writing because I encourage you to think about where it’s getting you as I have.
