Letter: Vote Democrats for 'the common good'

To the editor:

The Democratic Party works for the common good. If you doubt it, check out American history of the past 60 years.

When a Democrat was president and Democrats held a majority in the U.S. Senate and House, our country moved forward with Social Security, unemployment insurance, advancements in the minimum wage, Medicare, and now the Affordable Care Act. At some point in your life, you’ll be thankful for these Democratic initiatives, which most Republicans fought against.

Democrats work for economic prosperity that is fair to all, the opportunity for all children to learn, healthy air and clean water for all, equal justice under the law, fair taxation, and investing for the common good.

Don’t be fooled by the misinformation about Democratic candidates flooding your mailbox and TV.

Those deliberate distortions are funded by a few people who gained a lot from Bush’s tax cuts for the rich. They’re desperately fighting to keep their unfair advantage.
