Democrats raiding your pocketbook

Ah, dear readers, what if I asked you to donate one year's monthly income to the Democratic Party, say Monica Tranel? Other than the mega rich, few of you would do so.

Guess what, since they took power nationally Democrats have reduced your buying power through inflation by that amount. Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Price Statistics show 2020 inflation rate at 1.23 percent and 2022 rate at 9.54 percent. That difference is a month's income.

We do not need another lawyer with no experience in managing large complex programs. We need someone who will fight for the financial benefit of the working class and small business people.

Polls show inflation and its effect on our pocketbook as the top concern of this year's election cycle. Do you really want to reward the Democrats for their abysmal record of raiding your pocketbook? Then do not vote for Ms. Tranel.
