GOP wants to control our lives
To the Editor: Rep. Kevin McCarthy has been plainspoken about a tired and failed strategy of cutting taxes and regulations and targeted spending while giving tax incentives to the oil industry.
So what would Kevin and Sen. Mitch McConnell cut? Well, in addition to Social Security and Medicare, look for attacks on the bipartisan Infrastructure Bill and the Inflation Reduction Act.
While many observers note that additional spending has contributed to inflation, it makes no sense to cut programs that are now fighting inflation. A state spokesman recently noted that inflation has severely hampered their efforts to use state funds to pay for a collapsed bridge, but the federal infrastructure funds saved the project and bridge construction is nearly complete.
Sending Republicans to Washington with their slash and burn mentality would only make matters worse. Additionally, Ted Budd has made it clear he will not only continue to deny that Joe Biden is our legitimate president, but also deny women the right to make family decisions themselves. So go vote and support people with concrete plans to reduce costs and protect personal freedoms.
A vote for Jasmine Beach Ferrara as our congressperson and Cherie Beasley as our senator will send a message to keep us out of a recession and Republicans out of our lives.
