Time for change in Congress

I’m a retired Douglas County professional sharing why I think it is time for a change after generally voting Republican since 1976.

No, it’s not Trump (entirely). I’m driven by a deep frustration with the elected Republicans in Congress, who perennially fail to deliver on their election year promises. Oh, they passed “tax cuts for the rich” and that may help the economy. But, even with the presidency and majorities in both houses, they have utterly failed to deliver at all on crucial issues such as: preventing Social Security from going broke, comprehensive immigration reform, fixing VA and providing our veterans with the health care they deserve, funding the nation’s highway infrastructure replacement and upgrade needs, and more. I am just one person who believes it is time to let the Democrats have a chance to end the gridlock.
