Trump represents the ultra rich

Editor,

The Affordable Care Act is not failing. The GOP is trying to kill it! Why, because they never liked President Obama; they tried to block him at every turn for eight years.

Could it be the GOP did not want the first black president to succeed? Sorry, he did, and was one of the best examples of a great president we have seen in years. Fast forward a few months and we have Obama’s total opposite, Donald J Trump. This is someone who only seems to care about himself and his ultra-rich class.

Why try to jam though a health care bill in three weeks, rather than fix the parts of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that may need it? It took Congress over a year and a half to pass the ACA, why the rush now? Maybe because Trump is bored and wants to get out there for his “ego strokes” from his base. Hence the ultimatum, do it now or I”m done. No matter if 19-24 million people may lose care and coverage over the next few years.

Unfortunately, Americans put their trust in a millionaire, thinking he would care about them and their concerns. Instead the people got one of the worst examples of a president ever. An egotist who surrounds himself with an ultra-rich cabinet who will reinforce his worst instincts. Consequently we are stuck with so many bad and dangerous decisions, unless we act and speak up.

I haven’t even mentioned Russia, our enemy, forever. Why are so many of Trump’s people close to Russia? Why does Tillerson want to forego NATO meetings and go to Russia instead?! With all the controversy now. I’m sorry, but I see impeachment down the road, rather than let this man and his cronies destroy our country.

NANCY MAYER
