Republican plans

Following the election, I find myself wondering why people vote Republican. President Joe Biden has a favorable approval rating of only about 45 percent. What has he done to alienate 55 percent of the voters? Was it the big push on Covid vaccines that resulted in 250 million Americans getting vaccinated? Was it the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act that will refurbish and rebuild the nation’s roads, bridges, and water systems? Was it the Inflation Reduction Act, which will lower costs for families, combat the climate crisis, reduce the deficit, and ask the largest corporations to pay their fair share of taxes? Or perhaps it was his legislation that allows Medicare to negotiate drug prices with big Pharma and insure that no family spends more than $35 per month for insulin.

What are the Republicans plans? Well, we know they plan to increase the retirement age for social security and Medicare to 70 and to reduce benefits. We hear that they are planning to cut military aid to Ukraine. And they want to repeal Biden’s legislation on drug price negotiations and insulin cost caps. On the other hand, they plan to reduce taxes for the rich and for wealthy corporations yet again.

Folks, that’s all they have!
