LETTER: How low can Republicans go?

(metro creative)

To the Editor:

How low can you go? President Trump, U.S. Sens. Thune and Sen. Rounds and U.S. Rep. Noem have not bottomed out. The bar keeps getting lower — but will lower more.

It started with the "DC3's" racism toward a black president. Then a sexual predator ran against many races and put down whole countries for "make America white" again. They said, "vote for him" — lower.

Thune was on the health care team who proposed tossing 22 million people off health care — lower; it failed.

Roy Moore, Alabama, an alleged pedophile, though defeated, was endorsed by Trump and supported by the Republicans — lower.

Noem and Thune were in tax plan leadership — lower. It moved from 60 percent to 83 percent of benefits to the top one percent. The Corker-Trump kickback in real estate — $414 billion loophole. Estate tax — only 20 families in South Dakota and 4,000 in the nation — revenue lost.

Each time I write to the "DC3," I tell them "Thou shalt not lie, kill or steal."

A coal train for the poor/middle class — coal is back. A gravy/gold train for the 1v percent with larger penthouses; but 13 million people will be kicked off health care — lower. We have a campaign by the Fox News weed patch and the Republicans to get rid of the Mueller probe. Constitution, what Constitution?

The "DC3" haven't bottomed out. Paul Ryan says they will come for Medicare, Medicaid: rural hospital /nursing homes, Social Security. Tripp nursing home — first to close. Holding Trump accountable — fat chance.

They will go lower. South Dakota folks with morals, character, integrity, love of country need to bottom-up with great voices/actions. Top down is dead.
