It seems to me that most people would want clean air, safe water and food, good health and adequate health insurance coverage, good schools, and good, steady employment, civil rights and civil liberties.

All of these things that we hold dear are under attack by the Trump administration and the Republican Congress.


Trump has appointed, and Congress has approved, cabinet members who have a mission to dismantle and de-fund all of the departments that protect our water, air, land, schools, civil liberties, our public lands and National Parks, etc, etc.


The latest bill to replace the Affordable Care Act is even worse than the first one. There will be less coverage, no exemption for preexisting conditions, with the greatest burden of cost put on senior citizens.


On top of this, Trump has proposed tax breaks for corporations and the very wealthy, who already don’t pay their fair share.


Trump also wants to increase defense spending by 54 billion dollars! This would bring defense spending up to an astonishing 1.75 billion dollars per day!


This administration is clearly not acting in the best interests of the people of this nation. If there is to be any change, we must speak out and act. Otherwise, the powerful lobbies, money and special interest groups will continue to determine the policies and laws. We are getting a raw deal and if we don’t do something about it, it’s going to get a lot worse. It’s easy to make a call, email or write a letter. Join the indivisible movement! (www.indivisible.us). In a democracy, the job of the citizen is the most important one.
