The Sept 28 letter “ The Reid connection” had many fallacies in it, starting with calling Senate majority leader Harry Reid a “puppet master.”
If anyone is a puppet master, it is Ted Cruz, who led this government into a hissy-fit shutdown that cost the economy $24 billion. House Speaker Thom Tillis’ puppet masters are actually the Koch brothers and the NRA.
As far as undermining the “effectiveness” of the Senate, Mitch McConnell said on Day One of President Obama’s inauguration that his goal was to make him a one-term president. Not fix the economy, create jobs or get us out of the biggest economic disaster since the Great Depression. The Senate under McConnell has filibustered more bills than any other.
A vote for Tillis is a vote for the 1 percent and the Koch brothers and to allow wanton polluters to write our laws.
Never miss a local story.
