Letters to the Editor

Time for someone other than Ernst

I am responding to the editorial by Joni Ernst in the Des Moines Register on Jan. 30 (Democrats socialist agenda out of touch with Iowa).

She states Democratic presidential candidates are promoting “socialized medicine.” She voted several times to gut the ACA and leave a number of Iowans with no insurance. She trashes the Green New Deal.

Is she concerned about climate change? She says our values are “under attack from the left.” Our state is threatened by the “radical, socialist left” and decries “liberal insanity.”

I am a Democrat. My fellow Democrats and I are not a threat to this state. We are not treasonous monsters trying to overthrow the government.

Joni’s closed-minded, partisan thinking is on full display. How hateful and insulting from a woman who approved of separating babies from their parents at the border and keeping them in cages.

We deserve a senator who respects and can work with all constituents.
