GOP is indeed party of “no”

Regarding the Rich Brooks letter of Aug. 27., Mr. Brooks, I agree with you in a strange sort of way about the current Republican party. I am one of those who think the GOP has become the party of “no.”

No jobs bill. No health care. No unions. No middle class. I think it is unfair, uncaring, negative, unfeeling toward the poor, etc.

I believe Republicans only want to help their rich buddies, and they send jobs overseas. If the GOP wants a smaller government why are they so involved in women’s reproductive issues? Why are they forcing Christianity down our throats? Better check your facts about size and spending by the evil government. Obama comes in third next to Reagan and Bush.

The revered Ronald Reagan would not even win the GOP primary today. The party is loaded with tea partiers like Ted Cruz and Michelle Bachmann — no Reagans. It is making itself the party of “no” — “no” competition for the Democrats.

So yes, I agree with you.
