Regarding the Oct. 8 news article “Kay Hagan, Thom Tillis pull no punches in second debate”: I wonder why House Speaker Thom Tillis thinks it’s such a bad idea that Sen. Kay Hagan has voted for helpful legislation just because the president has proposed it.
After all it was Teddy Roosevelt who first tried to get affordable health care passed. Mitt Romney actually got it passed in Massachusetts. Cap and trade energy policy was a good Republican idea until the Democrats supported it.
A good idea seems to be something reasonable people could agree on, or would a Sen. Tillis just vote against anything good for North Carolina and our country because President Obama proposed it?
Isn’t being a good American more important than being a Republican?
