Republicans blame Biden for the cost-of-living increase and rise in the price of gas, even though much of this has been caused by global factors beyond our control-supply chain shortages and slowdowns, the war in Ukraine and price-gouging by oil and gas companies. Republicans tell you to vote for them because they will make things better.
But let me ask you-what solutions are the Republicans proposing to improve the economy? What’s their plan, other than to obstruct measures that Democrats have tried to pass to help all Americans families, regardless of their political affiliation?”
So far, Democrats have proposed measures to …
  • Fix our crumbling infrastructure and create good paying union jobs.
  • Improve our transportation systems, including repairing our roads, rail system and ports.
  • Repair lead-tainted pipes to bring clean water to all American families.
  • Upgrade our energy grid and bring broadband to underserved communities.
  • Increase minimum wage and provide subsidized childcare and paid parental leave for working parents.
  • Make healthcare and medicine affordable for all Americans.
  • Ensure baby food and diapers during a period of expensive supply shortage.
  • Protect public health so American families can continue earning an income. including pandemic relief for all individuals and businesses needing assistance.
  • Bolster U.S. competitiveness with China and aid domestic semiconductor production.
  • Make the richest Americans and corporations pay their fair share of taxes.
  • Make sure all women have access to the full spectrum of health services they need.
  • Ban weapons of war for private use so that our children, innocent adults, and our police may be protected from mass killings by assault weapons whose only purpose is to inflict maximum bodily damage.
Most Republicans voted no on every one of these popular measures, although this did not stop them from taking credit when such measures passed and were popular with their constituents.
Besides obstructing every measure that Democrats propose to make Democrats look bad, even though it hurts their constituents, what are Republicans proposing if they win the midterms?
  • Raising taxes on middle class and poor families.
  • Eliminating Obamacare, Veteran’s Benefits, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
  • Eliminating the Department of Education.
  • Creating a national ban on abortion across the country, with no exceptions for rape or incest.
  • Allowing everyone over 18 to own a semi-automatic weapon of war, the weapon of choice for mass shootings.
  • Suppressing your right to vote, although it has been repeatedly proven that there was no massive voter fraud in the last election.
Here are some more handy facts:
  • Trump deepened the deficit, while Biden has decreased it.
  • Trump increased unemployment, while Biden has cut it.
  • Trump was responsible for massive job loss, while Biden has been responsible for historic job creation.
So, tell me, who will help you and your family more-the party of progress or the party of potholes? The party of vision or the party of obstruction? The party that cares about you or the party that cares only about retaining its power, even if it means hurting you?
