Letter: Republicans violate principlesI’ve never been more confused; what does the North Dakota Republican Party stand for? I understood Republicans believed in less government involvement, personal responsibility, fiscal restraint to leave more money in the people’s pocket.
These bills are clearly government interference in health care, not unlike “death panels for elderly” fearfully described by GOP propaganda machines. North Dakota Republicans endorse wasting millions of tax dollars to ensure government can interfere with health care. But, they oppose federal health care dollars available for North Dakota’s people through insurance exchanges.
The Republicans admit outside interests are “eagerly” involved in their personhood bills, while they sponsor bills to stifle the North Dakota people’s ability to refer legislation.
I wonder who’s protecting the North Dakota people from these radical Republican legislators?
