Bush must believe pro-life doesn't exist for soldiers
In this election, the church wants us to support a person who is pro-life, but I'm a little confused as to when pro-life comes into existence. Is it only for the unborn child• So once you are born, pro-life doesn't exist. I'm sure this is what they mean! I am to support a person who believes that no one has the right to terminate a pregnancy. But I guess it's alright to support that same person who put the most people to death while governor• I guess it's alright to support that same person who took over 1,000 innocent adults and lead them to their death by sending them into Iraq because he believed it had chemical warfare. I thought we were an intelligent country!
When Bush took office, I wanted to know what he was going to do with our economy as it spiraled downward. I wanted to know what he was going to do so our senior citizens wouldn't have to choose between eating or buying prescriptions. He hasn't done anything about these.
One will say Bush brought in a new Medicare drug plan. Do you understand it• They must pay $35 per month and will receive a discount on their drugs as long as the drug company hasn't changed their percentage discount or dropped that drug. You see the drug company can make as many changes to the plan during the year. However, once the senior citizen selects this coverage, they are stuck with it for the entire year. Once they hit $2,500 they are without coverage until they reach $5,000. However, our state has PACE/PACEnet for senior citizens. They have increased their income limits and many more seniors were eligible this year. You pay a fixed amount for the prescriptions and with PACEnet there is a $45 monthly deductible. But if you use PACE/PACEnet, you must opt out of the Medicare plan.
Bush has done nothing for the middle class, little for the low income (by making poverty level even higher) and hats off to him from the high income group! He cut taxes.
How many who voted for Bush have lost jobs• Or, if you're still working, making less• Can any of you say you are better off today than you were Jan. 19, 2000• Are your investments more plentiful today than they were Jan. 19, 2000• If anyone out there is in a better place, by all means, vote for Bush.
