Letter: The GOP really doesn't care about you

To the Editor:

The GOP doesn’t care about you. The GOP obeys the Koch brothers.

Long ago, rumors abounded about Obamacare “death panels” as well as propaganda that hospital rooms would be transformed into six-bed wards.

None of it happened. In fact, if it weren’t for Obamacare, my household would be bankrupt along with millions of others.

Because the GOP doesn’t care about you. The GOP begs their dark money from the Koch brothers.

When a baby is born with cerebral palsy, Obamacare guarantees lifelong health insurance. No more lifetime caps or preexisting conditions. And many young adults are fortunate to be included in their parents’ health insurance.

So when the Republican Party attempted to repeal Obamacare 60 times, their purpose was to secure tax breaks for the rich. Because they don’t care about you. The GOP worships the Koch brothers.

The Graham-Cassidy version of Trumpcare would deprive health insurance for 32 million people and would cause the deaths of thousands. These are children, the disabled and the elderly. And healthy people would have to pay much more than ever before, many unable to afford the higher rates.

Why would the Republicans push murder through the halls of Congress? Because they really don’t care about you. The GOP bows down to the Koch brothers.

They also intend to destroy Social Security and Medicare. If it weren’t for Social Security and Medicare, the middle class would be forced to work until they drop dead.

It reminds me of a notable entrepreneur, who wisely commented recently, “Anyone who votes Republican is a fool – unless that fool is a millionaire, too.” In other words, only the filthy rich benefit from the GOP.
