Several reasons to vote Democratic

Dear Editor,Do friends and family still need a good reason to vote Democratic this Nov. 5?Here’s how Republican economic polices have hurt Colorado:-61,100 Colorado workers who have lost jobs since Bush took office-53,800 Colorado workers in danger of losing unemployment benefits-$2.65 billion 401(k) benefits lost by Colorado workers-15.6 percent of Colorado’s population currently without health insurance.What’s more, Bush has presided over a 94 percent decline in the federal budget surplus – that’s $5.3 trillion gone in less than two years.Think thoughtfully when you vote on Nov. 5.Constance CampbellCarbondale
