Letter - Stand with Democrats

Posted

Joe Biden was not my choice for the Democratic nominee. I voted for Bernie Sanders. I am willing to admit now that Joe is probably the only Democrat who could have beaten Donald Trump. It had to be a moderate. I am also willing to concede that Joe has been a very effective president,

especially given the small Democratic majorities in Congress.

In less than two years, the Democrats have passed a sizable COVID relief package, brought our troops home from Afghanistan, and also added a significant infrastructure bill, green energy incentives, more taxes on wealthy corporations, allowing Medicare to negotiate prescription drug prices, allowing hearing aids to be sold over the counter, at least modest student debt relief, and the president has been integral in holding the western alliance together in assisting Ukraine in their war effort against Russia.

No one likes high gas prices or inflation, but those are worldwide problems. No one wanted to see those 13 Marines killed by a suicide bomber at the airport in Kabul, but the American casualties would likely have been far worse if we had stayed. Lastly, lawlessness in Central America, Haiti and elsewhere has people walking hundreds of miles at great peril to get away from it. Add refugees from Afghanistan, Ukraine, Africa, and the Middle East, and there are no easy answers.

Overall, the present Democratic coalition has the country moving in the right direction against great odds, and we need to get behind them.
