LETTER: Votes for GOP will threaten Medicare and women’s rights

To Ozaukee Press:

Next week voters go to the polls to decide their future. Sadly, many citizens will vote to eliminate their hard-earned contributions to Social Security, Medicare and veterans benefits because a vote for Sen. Ron Johnson will do exactly that. He and other Republican lawmakers are politicking for a removal of these earned safety nets.

It is unfortunate that citizens will reward State Rep. Robert Brooks (R-Saukville), who along with other Republicans did all he could to destroy funding for the new Ozaukee County park, Cedar Gorge Clay Bluffs Nature Preserve.

It’s sad that Brooks and Republicans Knodl, Johnson and Michels want lawmakers to further erode women’s reproductive choices.

Republicans blame Democrats for crime in wildly distorted ads, while GOP lawmakers, sponsored by the NRA and other gun lobbies, refuse to support legislation to prevent teenagers from buying AR-15 military-type weapons. Gunshot deaths now surpass motor vehicle fatalities.

Democrats Dan Larsen, Bob Tatterson, Deb Andraca, Mandela Barnes, Tony Evers, Sara Rodriguez, Josh Kaul, Aaron Richardson and Doug La Follette are on your side, and have your back protecting our democracy. Vote wisely.
