Stefanik shows her loyalty is to Trump
Rep. Elise Stefanik signed onto the amicus brief in a Texas lawsuit that asked the courts to invalidate millions of votes from four swing states won by President-elect Joe Biden — a blatant attempt to undermine our democracy.
The “representative” in her title means she is a representative of Trump, as she is obviously not a representative of American democracy.
It’s absolutely disgusting that she would try to subvert our Constitutional process.
Don’t understand Republican actions
I am having a bit of a problem understanding why Sen. Mitch McConnell is objecting to the latest virus aid proposals on the basis that there is no money available. The House of Representatives passed a proposal back in May, and McConnell has refused to bring that proposal or any other Democratic or Republican proposal to the floor of the Senate.
In the meantime, the White House is throwing multiple Christmas parties, just one of which includes dinner, entertainment, dancing and drinks for 900 people.
I assume this is being paid for from federal funds (our tax money).
Also noted: The purchase of additional virus vaccinations is being held up because of price negotiations while somewhere in the area of 2,400-plus U.S. citizens per day are dying.
Secondarily, Vice President Mike Pence and many others are attempting to ban abortion.
My problem is that they are also cutting WIC and all the social programs that are there to provide clothing, food and housing for these unaborted children.
Is their goal to have the children born and then starve or freeze them to death?

Agree that Biden will restore America
I would like to thank Vince Dacquisto for his Dec. 9 pointed letter (“Biden will lift us out of Trump’s swamp.”)
He expressed what many of us feel after experiencing the last four years of the Trump presidency. We can only hope that some of our Republican colleagues will come to their senses and work with President-elect Biden to bring an end to this long period of partisan stagnation.
He’s a good man, and his extensive experience in government will serve him well in the task of rebuilding confidence and competence in our institutional structures.
Thanks, Vince, for the letter.
