In his July 28 column, Robert Levy’s facts and logic simply fell off the table. His comment that liberals hurt poor people is absurdly inaccurate.

Liberals in Congress have followed consistent policies that would raise the wage of poor people; provide more health care; lower the relative tax rates; provide better education; and more public services provided. Republican conservatives have blocked every initiative the help the lives of poor people.

Toward the end, Levy claims that if Caesar Chavez and Malcolm X were alive today, they would be “conservatives of the 21st century.” There could not be a more idiotic quote. In vetting your columns, you should require some minimal level of intelligence and integrity.

All you have to do is look at what “free” stuff every Democrat Presidential candidate is promising. As an example, Bernie Sanders is admitting that his health care plan would cost 30 to 40 trillion over ten years. He has said that taxes will the increased, but medical care would be free at delivery. This is just one of the bankrupting programs they all are pushing.

And how, pray tell, does Kent's recitation of quotes without context by three successful, elected politicians and an uber successful entertainer speak to Levy's inane conclusion?

Kent, the topic was "liberals hurt poor people".

Sally Larson

Or, "Liberals don't hurt poor people." Don't see your point.
