  • Letter: Don’t blame Democrats for Trump’s slow start and media response

    This is a response to Charles A. Bundy’s column in Friday’s Lancaster News, headlined “Negativism, resistance to president must end so we can solve problems.”
    The Republicans have majorities in both houses of Congress, so they can pass any legislation they want. But the writer states that “Democrats, supported by an unhappy and embarrassed media, have thrown up every conceivable stumbling block to the orderly formation of a new government.”

  • Letter: Small-business lobby supports Senate healthcare proposal

    Obamacare has been burdensome for small business. This week, the Senate has a chance to do something about it.
    Year after year, when the National Federation of Independent Business surveys its members, they say their No. 1 priority is health care, but the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, has made things more difficult for them. Its onerous taxes and mandates have increased costs and reduced choices.

  • Letter: GOP should protect Trump when Democrats attack him

    Democrats are in a near electoral collapse across the country.
    Republicans control both chambers of Congress and the White House. They have control of 33 governorships and 69 out of 99 state legislative chambers. (Nebraska has only one.) In the past eight years, Democrats have lost almost 1,000 elective seats nationally.

  • Letter: President sides with his voters, and that’s a good thing

    The world and social media are on fire because President Trump stopped our participation in the Paris climate pact. Who would have thought an American president would have actually sided with the people who elected him?
    He stood for us and not some globalist big shot or Hollywood star or the news media or even big business moguls who were set to make money at the people’s expense of lost jobs.

  • Letter: Norman understands government’s purpose

    I am a resident of the 5th Congressional District and work at Nutramax Laboratories in Lancaster. I am proud to be an American. I love God, my family and this country. I am a Christ-follower, which guides every aspect of my life including serving others, especially in our own community.

  • Letter: Several reasons to vote for Archie Parnell

    Republican Ralph Norman and Democrat Archie Parnell are running for Mick Mulvaney’s vacated 5th District congressional seat.
    Special elections for Congress in Kansas, Montana and Georgia have gotten much national attention, but the S.C. race has not. Why? Because the 5th District is considered “safe” by the Republicans, and the Democrats see it as unwinnable.

  • Letter: Norman will continue Mulvaney’s good work

    Joseph DelMaster’s anti-Trump diatribe on Wednesday’s opinion page, his excuse for supporting Archie Parnell for Congress, was mostly ridiculous and false.
    He parrots stale Democratic propaganda about President Trump being an embarrassment in the world, with nothing to back it up.
    DelMaster asks if we are prepared to send a new Republican to Congress? We did with Mick Mulvaney, and this voter is well prepared to continue his excellent legacy. Voters did just choose Trump, so yes we are prepared to elect those who will support our choice.

  • Letter: Why I support Archie Parnell

    I will vote for Archie Parnell for Congress on Tuesday, and I hope you will do the same.
    Parnell believes that if you paid into Social Security and Medicare, you have earned it. He will stand up for families and defend health care and Medicare.

  • Letter: Norman voted against homeowners on HOA board

    Does your housing development have a homeowner’s association?  If so, read this.
    U.S. House District 5 candidate Ralph Norman is a real estate developer and politician. In the S.C. House, he opposed all bills that would allow residents on HOA boards during building. He said that you had to wait until the last house was sold.
    That might result in homeowners not understanding community problems and/or expenses until after the developer leaves.That seems unfair.

  • Letter: Parnell ‘truly qualified candidate’

    We are fortunate in the 5th District of South Carolina to have the opportunity to send a truly qualified candidate to Washington to represent us.  
    Democrat Archie Parnell was born and raised in South Carolina, and received his law degree from USC. He cares what happens to the people of our state. He is an accomplished attorney who served in the Justice Department in Washington before working for many years in business, consulting on tax compliance issues with large, international companies.
