LETTER: Time to vote in people who can’t be bought

To the Editor:

When Obama ran for president and wanted to have a health program for all the people, the Republicans spent their time trying to defeat him with no success. Then they spent their time trying to get rid of Obamacare and to defeat a second term for Obama. Obama was re-elected and Obamacare is alive.

Frustrated Republicans decided to not fund Obamacare and caused a government shutdown. Result? Republicans lost and Obamacare is alive and healthy.

Money has been poured into Congress from the Stock Brothers from Wichita, Kan., and other sources to persuade laws being passed to benefit only the wealthy. Congress doesn’t seem to do a good job of thinking as it takes its orders from the wealthy and the American people’s problems are overlooked. It’s a disgrace to have money control our Congress.

I have read about slavery in our country; disrespect and cruelty were a disgrace by those responsible for such a program.

Those who wish to abolish Obamacare with nothing to replace it show disrespect to the underprivileged children, those with no insurance and those rejected because of some health problem.

Money has overruled common sense in the workings of Congress today, when Congress takes its orders from the wealthy and protects only what benefits the wealthy. In my opinion, we need a change, and to vote in people that will work for the benefit of all the people instead of a select few. When people can be bought, it’s time to go. Congress, I mean you.

We need to vote in people who will do their own thinking and have a common-sense attitude and respect for the job they were sent to Washington to do. The money-hungry people with no self-respect have no place in Washington.
