While reading the commentary section of the Sept. 6 edition of The Free Lance-Star, I decided to comment on the letters written by Kerry Sipe ["'2016': A spaced-out odyssey from the ideological right"] and Fred Krongold ["As a decent man, I can't vote for the GOP"].
There is no direct response to these two lame letters. If these two individuals actually believe what they wrote, there is no hope.
We know nothing about Obama's past. His autobiography is riddled with made-up stories and statements that have been proven to be lies.
A 2011 biography of Obama's mother by New York Times journalist Janny Scott found that Dunham's health insurance plan "covered most of the costs of her medical treatment" for uterine and ovarian cancer.
Krongold says the GOP wants to cut off programs that further the health and welfare of kids and adults and save lives. I challenge Mr. Krongold to show me in any documentation where the GOP is promoting these policies. Yes, we must do something about Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and other social programs. However, I cannot find where the GOP wants to do away with these programs in any of their literature.
The administration has taken $716 billion out of Medicare Advantage to pay for Obamacare. Fact-checking will confirm this. Lyndon Johnson put Social Security into the general fund to pay for his social programs and the Vietnam War. This is fact, check it. These were not GOP policies.
I'm not saying the GOP
