Letter: Reduced to what?

Just what do the Republicans have to offer the voters this year? They want to reduce government? To what?

They intend to replace Medicare and Medicaid with a voucher program, privatize Social Security, get President Barack Obama and Obamacare out altogether, and do away with any social programs that would help those less fortunate.

In other words, if you can't afford it, you must do without! Those who proclaim to be so religious would forbid abortion because life is precious, but allow those without insurance to die. Where is their compassion?

Bush called himself "the compassionate conservative." Look where he left us! Just what are the values these Republican candidates profess?

You may love, but they will dictate whom! No gays can marry or raise a family — only heterosexuals.

No birth control — instead, abstain or it might lead to devious practices.

It seems that all the Republicans want is to destroy any progress that Democrats have made for the majority of Americans, but offer nothing in return.

Be careful what you ask for this November, America. You might just get it.
