Letter: Kinzinger's positions are clear

To the Editor:

Shelly [Skau] said [in a March 13 letter to the editor] she just wants to hear U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Illinois, speak so she has a better understanding of his positions. She should know full well where he stands on ACA, deportation, etc. if she would only have taken the time to see him speak on Fox News, Fox Business News, WGN, WLS, Meet the Press or Donald Trump at his town hall meetings and rallies that were not disrupted or canceled by paid protesters and thugs well before the election.

The Republicans ran on smaller government and repeal of Obamacare. I’m sure she was too busy listening to MSNBC, CNN, CBS, NBC and the left telling her that Trump had no chance of winning.

Now she and the Democrats have nothing left to do but lick their wounds and make as much noise as they can. The Republicans ran on a platform and that platform is what cost the Democrats an election.

Do you really think if you got up on your soap box you could change their minds? The Republicans ran on a platform and they are now implementing what they promised their constituents who put them in power. If they took you to the dance, that’s who you go home with!
