ELECTION: In response to Kasten letter

In response to Mr. John Kasten’s letter to the editor, “In support of Tipirneni for congress,” I would like to provide answers to his many questions regarding Congresswoman Debbie Lesko’s positions, based upon my understanding, concerning problems needing solutions.

Ms. Lesko’s position on healthcare can be exemplified by the passage of legislation she has supported repealing the medical device tax, the annual health insurance tax enacted by Obamacare, legislation that expanded access to insurance coverage and expanding Healthcare Savings accounts.

Her concern for border security is why she is a member of the Homeland Security Committee. She wrote a bill, which was passed unanimously with bipartisan support, to develop a plan to detect and analyze threats at our ports of entry. She co-sponsored the Securing America’s Future Act, along with voting for the Border Wall Trust Fund Act and the Criminal Alien Removal Clarification Act. No one is more involved in securing our borders than Ms. Lesko.

Concerning women’s rights, I think you just need to take a look at her entire history of service for our state, and as a survivor of domestic violence herself, to see that she is a champion and an inspiration for women.

For those who are not fans of capitalism, it is difficult to understand the benefits that capitalism has on the whole of society. Ms. Lesko understands perfectly and supports those things that benefit all of Arizona through a thriving economy. I am sure the readers have all had an inkling of what good a thriving economy has had for each of them in the last two years.

With all due respect to Al Gore, the impact of humanity on the climate is still not understood nor embraced by all of the science community.

Please do your own research on Congresswoman Debbie Lesko and I think you’ll see what an asset she has been to Arizona and why she needs to be re-elected.
