I grow weary of the Russian connection and the hoopla surrounding it. Otherwise honorable men are bickering over the impact that our enemy had over our election. Our deceased veterans must be turning in their graves to see our government defending Russians who have fought proxy wars against us since World War II.
Our congressional members continuously claim to be loyal Americans while their actions suggest treason is not a subject to be examined. For too many of our congressional leaders preventing healthcare for our citizens is more important than government oversight now that we have a white Republican president.
Our low- to moderate-income citizens are the ones suffering the most as their incomes are not enough to meet the family needs for housing, food, and healthcare. When we look at the election reports, many low to moderate income voters chose Republicans to be our leaders. It must be very hurtful for them to see the Republican efforts to ensure they continue to live in poverty. These red blooded Americans are troubled to see their chosen leaders embrace treasonable actions by looking away from revealed facts.
Republican actions at the state and now federal levels have created situations where low- to moderate-income Americans are depending on the lottery to escape their poverty-filled lives.
Shame on all of us who chose unwisely.
