We have to speak up and acknowledge what some Republicans are doing on our behalf in our country. Our state representatives stopped the expansion of Medicaid, they continue to move funding for our public schools to mostly religious schools. The Trump administration has appointed as our secretary of education one who has never attended public school nor have her children. She does not believe in evolution and does not believe it should be taught in our schools.
On the state level, the Republicans appointed a chairman of the state Board of Education who does not believe that evolution should be taught in the public schools either. We need our children to keep pace with the rest of the industrial world and not fall back because our leaders are not up to the job of leading us in the 21st century. The Republican Party keeps thinking of ways to stop people from voting and they will not acknowledge that President Obama is responsible for our recovery that we are experiencing right now.
One billion-plus dollars given to every state for road work, bridges and overpasses was not chicken feed, although he wanted $3 trillion and only was able to get
$87 billion passed into law. The administration ran on promoting a bigger infrastructure bill, but that has not happened. Just like all the other promises Trump made to the American people that never happened. There has not been one single bill to fund infrastructure work since President Obama had his stimulus package signed into law. Sen. Mitch McConnell will not bring any bill that the U.S. House of Representatives have passed to the floor of the Senate for a vote. When citizens complain about Congress not doing their job, it’s not because the Democrats are not doing their job. It’s now obvious to everyone at this point, that it’s the Republicans in the Senate that have stopped the government from functioning and they are blaming the president because they’re not sure he will sign anything.
I just happened to see a letter today expressing the opinion that the Republican Party is still the party of Lincoln. I’m sorry to inform you that the Lincoln Republican Party died with him, and that ideal was not resurrected again until LBJ took office and those ideals were folded into the Democratic Party; it was the start of our country regaining its soul.
