To the editor:
After seeing all of the attack ads against Pete Hoekstra in the U.S. Senate race, I have decided to do some reading about that race. In particular, I was interested in Senator Stabenow's ad where she said that if people want to cut Medicare, they will have to go through her. You see, Medicare is very important to members of my family and I cannot imagine any politician cutting it. I was shocked to see that not only did President Obama go through her to cut Medicare, but she was the deciding vote on Obamacare, which slashed $716B from Medicare. She didn't protect Medicare; she aided and abetted the butchering of Medicare.
This is not what she promised us and it is not the leadership we expect from a U.S. Senator. Pete Hoekstra, on the other hand, has promised to help restore Medicare funding to help protect our seniors. On Nov. 6, I will be casting my vote for Pete Hoekstra, because our seniors deserve better than Debbie Stabenow.
