Letter: Democrats best for health care


Currently, U.S. coronavirus cases are over 1.6 million, with deaths at over 94,000. Dr. Michael Osterholm says “we’re only in the second inning.” The Republicans and Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Battle Ground, have their lawsuit to eliminate people’s health care with or without pre-existing conditions before the court while having no replacement plan. The deadly coronavirus hasn’t even been enough for “heartless” Republicans to consider pulling their lawsuit. President Trump refused to reopen Obamacare enrollment to help the uninsured.

If you don’t need health care, vote Republican and Herrera Beutler. If you do need health care, vote Democrat and Carolyn Long. The choice couldn’t be more clear.
