Letters to the Editor

Republicans, in spite of their posturing, obviously are not Christians

Christ wanted us to take care of each other, Repugnicans do not want to help you - as if taking care of each other is bad. Christ thought taking care of each other was good. Repugnicans want Americans to die, rather than grant us adequate health insurance; see Alan Grayson, Florida. Plateau people, can you finally see what Repugnicans stand for? A broken economy, wars, torture, ignoring the Constitution of the United States and attempting to kill your family members via nonadequate health insurance.

If Repugnicans have a better plan, why did they not introduce it during the eight dark years just passed? Would you rather Repugnicans rolled back the provision that insurers can no longer deny you coverage on a previous condition? Or would you rather Repugnicans rolled back the provision health insurers can no longer deny you coverage if you get sick? Or would you rather Repugnicans rolled back the tax cuts for small businesses - designed to assist small businesses in providing adequate health insurance for their employees - which tax cuts are scheduled to begin this year, 2010? Or would you rather Repugnicans rolled back the assistance for Granny to reduce drug costs? Or would you rather Repugnicans rolled back the proviso young people up to the age of 26 be allowed coverage under their parents insurance? Or would you rather, like the Gingrich Congress, pound on poor kids - for whom Gingrich stopped lunch payments - by having Repugnicans roll back the proviso that kids can no longer be denied health insurance on the basis of their medical histories?

Repugnicans spit on black Congress people, swear at them, threaten them. We’ve all just seen that on the news: is that Christian behavior? I repeat, Repugnicans are not Christians and demonstrate extremely limited Christian values.
