Letter: Republicans

May 11, 2014 

Regarding Mark Cook's championing of Obamacare, I guess Harry Reid must be his hero. Everyone who says their insurance has gone up must be lying. This whole program was sold to us on a pack of lies. If Obamacare is so great, why is he, Congress, union workers exempt? Wouldn't be to keep the Democrats' voter base would it?

If this administration had sealed the border we wouldn't need to adjust the minimum wage; by eliminating millions of people who are willing to work for so much less we could put more Americans to work and create competition.

We now have a national debt of $17.4 trillion, more programs, more spending. That seems to work well with Democrats like Mr. Cook. The 10 worst cities in the U.S. are run by Democrats. Boise and Idaho rank high as a place to live. I wonder why. Thanks, Republicans.
