Letters to the editor, October 6

Hungry Americans

I can’t believe that people continue to elect Republicans who are so insensitive to the needs of Americans who go hungry every day because they do not have enough money for food.

This includes children who are dependent upon others, through no fault of their own.

The food stamp program, which these Republicans have severely voted to defund, does the bare minimum to help the disadvantaged put food on the table.

Think about this, as you draw the curtain behind you (which I hope you do) on election day. Democrats are not perfect; after all, they are human. But they are doing better than the Republicans are right now in this situation.

It’s time to vote the Republicans out.
