Get rid of the GOP, support the people

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionThe United States was founded upon the fight for independence from a monarchy and unfair taxation. The GOP would return the United States to a kleptocracy. The Republicans’ tax bill is a travesty that will further devastate the poor and middle class while rewarding billionaires and large corporations with a mega tax cut. This bill will balloon the deficit, which the GOP will use as an excuse to cut Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare.The GOP and Comrade Trump know that their tax bill’s “trickle down” economics has never worked. The GOP and Trump’s “fact-free” sound bites about the tax legislation are transparent to over 50 percent of the public who oppose this reverse Robin Hood bill. Yet, few Republicans opposed this sham bill that will also open up ANWR to oil drilling, causing permanent environmental degradation. But the GOP’s long-term plan is more destructive and sinister. Republican administrations continue to appoint ultra-right and unqualified lifetime judges to federal courts. The GOP fosters distrust in the government and legitimate news outlets while promoting their own false narratives. Trump’s unstable personality disorder could lead us into a nuclear war, if only to distract from the Russia investigation and garner immediate lemming-like support for this embarrassing specimen of a president.It’s time for the public to awaken from the GOP’s gas-lighting strategies. The Republicans have retreated from the principles upon which this country was founded. Americans need to replace the GOP with politicians who will support “we the people,” not just the rich.Doreen HarrisScotiaMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady teens accused of Scotia auto theft, chase; Ended in Clifton Park crash, Saratoga Sheriff…EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homeslast_img
