Vote for Democrats across the ballot

    It’s time for a change, my fellow Idahoans. Why would you relish being called “the second most conservative state” in the nation. Why? Why would you vote to conserve/preserve Republican policies where Mitt Romney pays 13 percent tax on his $83,000-a-minute income while the majority of Idaho voters pay 28 percent on your less-than-$8.30-every-60 minutes income. More Idahoans earn less than $8.30 than most other states. You vote to conserve/preserve that policy? Why?
    Republican positions stand against a living minimum wage, equal pay for equal work, Head Start, the Affordable Care Act (ACA/Obamacare). In fact, Republican “family values” purposely forced thousands of families (many of you “conservative” voters) to be excluded from ACA/Obamacare. Your “representatives” chose to exclude your fellow Idahoans/friends/family.
    Is that really what you want Idaho? I know ranch hands, restaurant workers and others who suffered for years because they couldn’t afford insurance who’ve received the care they needed thanks to Democratic policies that Idaho votes against. Republicans still don’t have a proposed replacement for ACA/Obamacare. It’s Democratic, not Republican values which help your families. Democrats support the policies Republicans oppose. It’s time for a change. Vote with Democrats across all ballots.
