Letter: Republicans against the people


Clark County residents should vote for Republican candidates, unless:

They like free and fair elections and believe that the 2020 election was not stolen. Republicans in many states are trying to give election officials the power to overturn elections when they don’t agree with the outcome.

They are diabetic, at risk for diabetes, or know someone who is diabetic. Republicans voted against capping the cost of insulin at $35 a month.

They are a veteran or support veterans. Republicans voted against guaranteeing benefits for veterans exposed to toxic substances during their service.

They enjoy paying record high gas prices. Republicans voted against a bill that would make it unlawful for oil and gas companies to raise fuel prices excessively while their profits are surging.

They have a baby or know a baby. Republicans voted against a bill that would provide aid to solve the baby formula shortage.

They worry about homegrown white nationalist terrorists. Republicans voted against a bill designed to combat domestic terrorism.

They like having their taxes increased. Many Republicans want to raise taxes on working people, while keeping the tax breaks enjoyed by companies and the wealthy.

They are at or may someday reach retirement age. Some Republicans want to limit or eliminate programs like Social Security and Medicaid through “sunset provisions.”
