Republicans need some compassion

Published 9:30am Monday, March 25, 2013

This is how Republicans can earn back my vote: stop withdrawing support to education, the homeless, the hungry, the sick, job creation bills, teachers, our environment, college students and children, in favor of fighting for more expensive toys for the super-wealthy.

There is no shortage of money, only a shortage of compassion and ethics. No child should be denied food, health care or education because we want to sip expensive wine in our hot tubs. Our desire for comfort and convenience does not justify the suffering of millions of Americans.
