Letter to the editor: Gardner protects the wealthy

Colorado senator Cory Gardner just voted for a budget that will cut Medicare by nearly $500 billion, Medicaid by $1 trillion, and affordable housing, medical research and education programs by $800 billion while providing trillions in tax cuts to the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans and increasing the federal deficit by $1.5 trillion over the next decade. How many families here in the San Luis Valley will benefit from that budget? Not many. I’d like to see Mr. Gardner start doing the job he was elected to do of protecting the lives and well being of all Colorado citizens, not just his wealthy donors. If you think the same, give his office a call at 202-224-5941 or 719-632-6706 and let him know. Colorado needs a senator who works for all Coloradans and not just the wealthy minority.
