“Put Meadows Out To Pasture” — Letter to the Editor

In the October 1st, 2018 edition of The Transylvania Times, Wayne Clark of Brevard, NC wrote,

Rep. Mark Meadows has lost touch with the people of the 11th congressional district. He spends his time pimping for Trump, promoting the so-called Freedom Forum in Congress and shilling for Fox News.

Meadows bills himself as a conservative, but in reality he is a right-wing extremist who serves up deregulation and tax cuts for the super rich and austerity for everyone else. It’s no surprise that Big Pharma and other fat cats love him.

If Meadows gets an opportunity, he will help cut Medicaid and Medicare to the bone, and he will back reducing and privatizing Social Security. Of course, his own retirement and health care benefits will be adjusted annually for inflation.

The unemployed and working poor don’t exist for Mark Meadows. He even ignores middle class voters when he can get away with it. The only constituents he takes seriously are those with very deep pockets and a right-wing agenda.

There may be worse members of Congress than Meadows, but I doubt it. The voters of the 11th congressional district deserve better. It is time to put Mark Meadows out to pasture.
