Not caring but cruel

headache

I care about … –Rep. Tom Reed

Tom Reed’s mantra is “I care” A caring person can’t be cruel, yet Tom Reed’s indifference to human needs is cruel. Here are some overt examples:

  • Lower taxes for the rich, benefit cuts for the rest.
  • Opposition to funding for food stamps (SNAP).
  • Opposes health care affordable by all.
  • Puts firearm sales before children’s lives.
  • Tom’s answer to the cost of higher education–don’t bother with college.

Since Tom Reed supports whatever President Trump may propose, he tacitly supports Trump’s cruelties:

  • Separating children from parents.
  • Detention facilities for children.

Tom says he cares about his constituents’ concerns, but there is little evidence that he does.

    Reformatted, this could be used as a model letter to the editor.

    Mr . Reed says he wants the “law changed” so children cannot be separated at the border. But no law REQUIRES such a separation. He has said that Trump had no choice but to follow the (non-existent law), yet Trump has already changed the policy. So what is it? Is Trump NOW breaking the law? Reed has called on Congress to change the law (he is a member of Congress, by the way but I see no evidence that he has offered a bill specifically to end this practice of child separation.. On his website, immigration is NOT one of the issues he lists. If he has offered a law to protect children at the border I have not been able to find it. Tom seems to be all talk on this issue. Tom often slides around the facts, uses partial truths and speaks out of both sided of his mouth. Take a stand, Tom.

    Tom runs for reelection as a caring person. If voters came to see this as a false facade, their opinion of Tom might change.

    Letter to Editor….YES! The facts need to be shared not skewed “truths.”

    Where was Reed’s denouncement of Trump when Trump suggested that our area was failing and that we should move to Wisconsin or Michigan?

    As I recall, Reed was silent on that, too.
