I’m not sure where to begin to respond to all the half-truths and exaggerations in the letter from the gentleman critical of Tom Burke’s column. A “thousand positive things our country has achieved under the current Republican administration”?
Overturning something that President Obama accomplished does not count as an accomplishment. The only thousand things I can think of are the over 15,000 lies trump has told since taking office, and lies are not positive things. As for the Trump economy, you can thank President Obama for starting the economic expansion the country is currently enjoying, and he didn’t do it by cutting taxes for big business and the 1 percent.
I have yet to hear anything from the Republicans and their apologists as to how they plan on cutting the deficit, which is growing exponentially under Trump. Raise taxes on the working class, cut Social Security, or cut Medicare? Which will it be?
Finally, as to corruption, how many Obama administration officials were convicted and went to jail versus how many under trump are convicted felons?
