Party serves billionaires at expense of ordinary Americans.
I'm writing regarding "Today's Republican Party all about selling access to power" (Reading Eagle, May 14). The hypocrisy of the Republican Party is astounding. Political parties have priorities, and the past 15 months have shown where Republican priorities lie. Health care reform and infrastructure improvements are not priorities, but cutting taxes for billionaires was the top priority.
During the past year the Republican-controlled Congress has passed only one major bill, the so-called Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and in the process created a projected deficit the likes of which the U.S. has not seen since the end of World War II.
Are these representatives working for the working class voters who sent them to Washington or for the billionaires? Elections have consequences.
Republicans show their true priorities
