Letter to the Editor

Democrats want to help everyone

Monday, May 2, 2005

To the editor:

Republicans say Democrats have no morals because of their stance on abortion and gay rights, among other things. I ask you: Is it moral to take away Medicaid so that the poor and the disabled have no health care and to make the rich richer? Republicans claim to be Christians, yet that is morally wrong even according to the Bible. Democrats have more morals than the Republicans ever thought of having. Democrats want to reach out and help everyone, not just the rich. So let's get off our butts and take Missouri back. Don't be tricked by Republicans again.
