Viewer Response - Lunsford Endorsement (10-30-08)
This week WDRB's Bill Lamb endorsed Senator Mitch McConnell for U.S. Senate. Mr. Lamb was swayed by McConnell's claims of clout and leadership, but you shouldn't be. McConnell is costing Kentuckians far more than he's bringing back. Because of the failed policies of George Bush and Mitch McConnell, every Kentuckian has paid $2,100 for the Iraq War, $2,300 for the Wall Street bailout, and owes $33,000 for the national debt.
In the meantime, McConnell has deprived Kentuckians of health care for children, benefits for veterans, cheaper prescription drugs, and done nothing to prevent our neighbors from losing their homes. McConnell even chose tax cuts for the super-rich over tax cuts for the middle class.
After 24 years in Washington, Mitch McConnell's using his clout for the wrong people.
We need change now.
On Tuesday, I'm voting for Bruce Lunsford because he'll take us in a new direction, one built on opportunity and prosperity for Kentucky's families and small businesses, not the special interests. And believe me, Bruce Lunsford will be no ordinary first-term senator. He'll be independent like Kentucky, fight for us, and use his vote to put Kentucky first.
Not only will Bruce bring his real-world business experience to Washington to help get our economy back on track, he'll use his experience in health care to make health insurance more affordable. And Kentucky will benefit from having a voice in the strong majority Democrats will have.
Join me in voting for Bruce Lunsford on Tuesday. It's time for change.
