Letter to the Editor: HOW ARE REPUBLICANS DOING THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE?

Editor, Times-Advocate:

Help me understand how the Republicans feel they are doing the will of the people.  Recent history denies that.  When Bush Jr. became president, he received less votes than Gore yet the Republican-leaning Supreme Court gave the election to Bush and we get a war!

The people wanted health care so Obama had to do an end-run in order to institute it, and the Party of No spent seven years fighting to get rid of it even denying legally elected President Obama his right to choose a supreme court appointment.  Trump received 3 million less votes yet gets elected because of the Electoral College and we get a president who has spent eight months working against the will of the people to get rid of the Affordable Care Act.  Now he’s doing it again instead of working on meaningful legislation.!  Don’t the Republicans get it?  We want Obama Care!

ANDY G. PINO, Escondido
