To the Editor:
Much has been made about the personalities of the two Presidential candidates. All we really have to do is take a close look at the issues.
One candidate has fought for universal healthcare for decades; the other wants to repeal the Affordable Care Act, denying health insurance coverage to millions.
One supports comprehensive immigration reform; the other wants to deny people access to the U.S. based on their religion.
One supports a woman’s right to choose under Roe v. Wade; the other wants to punish women for having abortions.
One wants to create jobs by investing in infrastructure, clean energy, and scientific /medical research; the other has a plan that Brookings and Moody’s say will create larger budget deficits and higher unemployment.
One supports the nuclear inspections agreement with Iran; the other wants to cancel the agreement which would allow Iranian weapons production to resume.
One is an experienced diplomat who has cultivated long-term relationships with world leaders; the other does not believe in the Geneva Conventions, threatens not to support NATO, and cozies up to Russia.
One supports indexed minimum wage increases; the other does not support changes for a living wage.
One has specific plans to address global warming; the other believes global warming is a hoax.
We get to decide.
