Letter to the Editor,
As a life long Kentucky resident I urge fellow citizens to vote for for Amy McGrath. It is time to restore balance and put a check on Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell’s right wing agenda. As a nurse for over 40 years I support Amy McGrath largely because of her stance on health related issues. I want a representative in Washington who will oppose the Republican plans to:
end or reduce medicare, medicaid and social security benefits
repeal the Affordable Care Act and restore insurance company’s ability to cancel or deny health insurance to people when they are sick
convert the Veterans Hospital into a ‘for profit’ health care system
roll back protections for students from abusive for-profit schools and colleges
appoint more judges who will advance right wing agenda to undermine voting rights, overturn Roe v Wade and Right to Marry as settled law.
build an expensive border wall and separate desperate asylum seekers from their children
ignore gun violence as a public health issue
ignore climate change and health effects of environmental pollutants.
There are many other critical issues at stake in this election. I urge everyone to think thoughtfully about what matters to you and vote accordingly.
