LaBoyteaux 2020 — Christmas ….. and the Boarder

About a week out from Christmas now. A joyous season and the airwaves and web are filled with Christmas music.

Merry Christmas and season’s greetings to all. Some are not so fortunate.

I don’t know why Republicans keep trying to tear down the Affordable Care Act rather than trying to improve it. No alternative is offered. Looks like blatant partisanship to me. Everyone, sooner or later, needs healthcare and one must be healthy to work. This is about who we are as a nation. Affordable healthcare should be available to all.

Glad to see the Congress finally got some spine regarding the murder of a Washington Post journalist in the Saudi Embassy in Turkey. Thank Turkey also for exposing this crime. United States leadership in the world is a balance between not meddling in the affairs of other nations while calling out and penalizing human rights abuses. Sometimes a military response is the only course that works, to stop ISIS or a dictator using poison gas.

We should not be having this impasse in Washington over boarder security and immigration. As president, I don’t have to have all the answers. I’m not the king. Just ask Congress to address boarder security with bi-partisan hearings. Any barrier at the boarder is easily overcome without constant patrol and observation. I understand our boarder officers prefer a strong fence to a solid wall because they can see what is happening on the other side. We need a secure boarder and we need compassion for people in danger and those who have been in the United States for a long time.

Wishing you and your family a joyous Christmas and keeping in mind all of our citizens and the future of our nation.

John LaBoyteaux
