Responds to ‘Not on the Biden Bandwagon’
To the editor:
Being the hardcore Republican that you are, no one ever expected you to become a Biden fan. Apparently, you believe clean air, water and the preservation of our planet are just “stifling regulations.”
Late-term abortions are between the 21st to 24th weeks of gestation only, because the embryo is not able to survive outside the womb or without medical assistance. Over 32,000 rapes committed each year result in pregnancy. You and the GOP are attempting to return women to the times of back-alley, coat-hanger abortions.
Secured southern borders that Mexico was to pay for has failed. Are the 666 children torn from their parent’s arms and left as orphans a threat to you?
COVID-19 vaccines have been in development for over 10 years but work began again when this pandemic hit. There are over 290,000 deaths and over 2,000,000 infections in the U.S. which Trump is still claiming are “going to go away” as he plays golf, undermines the physicians, scientists, holds super spreader events and promotes not wearing masks.
Biden’s accomplishments include reviving our economy, expanding access to health care, advancing women’s rights and gender equity, climate change, promoting peace and security, protecting children, policing and criminal justice reform, blocked the nomination of Robert Bork, who wanted to revoke advances in civil rights.
The affordable care act protects people with preexisting conditions. 82 million Americans with employer-based coverage have a pre-existing condition. Without the Affordable Care Act, such conditions limit the ability to obtain affordable health insurance if they become self-employed, unemployed, take a job that doesn’t offer coverage, or experience a change in circumstance. Americans between ages 55 and 64 are at higher risk: 48 to 86 percent of people in that age bracket have a pre-existing condition. 15 to 30 percent of people in good health today are likely to develop a pre-existing condition over the next eight years. Don’t forget Trump refused to extend the registration deadline for ACA when this pandemic started.
Trump recently announced that the United States would withdraw from the 1992 Open Skies Treaty (OST). OST allows its’ members – the U.S., Canada, Russia, 34 European countries- to conduct unarmed surveillance flights in each others’ air space. He ordered these observation planes to be dismantled and destroyed. Trump’s withdrawal was a gift to Putin.
Recent administrations with the most criminal indictments: Trump (Republican) – 215, Nixon (Republican) – 76, Reagan (Republican) – 26; Recent administrations with the least criminal indictments: Obama (Democrat) – 0, Carter (Democrat) – 1, Clinton (Democrat) – 2. Trump is replenishing the cesspool he created.
The country’s safety and democracy are threatened by this administration. Poll workers, AG’s, and governors have been threatened because of Trump’s remarks. He’s misogynistic, racist, narcissistic, unintelligent with autocratic tendencies. He’s hired unqualified people in key positions, diplomatic posts are vacant and the brave people that tell the truth are fired. When Biden won the presidency, a weight was lifted by knowing we did not have to endure another four years of oppression, bullying, lying, name-calling, and alienation of our allies. Now we hope for a better country.
