My Donations Are Principled – Unlike Democrats Who Support Maga Candidates | Letters

Robert Reich (History Will Judge Republicans Who Keep Quiet About the Big Lie, 9/11) criticizes me and others who have endorsed Republican candidates.

Obviously, Mr. Reich does not make the same criticism of Democratic donors. Across the country, the Democratic Party and its affiliates have given generously to support the Maga candidates again and again. In Illinois, for example, billionaire Democratic Governor JB Pritzker and the Democratic Governors Association just spent $35 million promoting a Republican candidate’s Maga credentials. The transparent strategy was designed to defeat a moderate Republican candidate. This is the most hypocritical and cynical policy.

I proudly spend money supporting politicians whose ideas I believe will secure a better future for America — and encourage others to do the same. I have supported politicians from both parties who focus on education, sound economic policies, crime prevention and national security. I will continue to use my resources to support the men and women working to stop the senseless policies that are destroying lives, devastating communities and weakening America.

If my actions in the public space can play a small part in educating our children better, making our cities safer, and creating a thriving economy that rewards everyone’s hard work, I’m more than happy to be judged on those results. . I would argue that issues of education, security, and economic prosperity are far more important to ordinary Americans — and to the future of democracy — than Mr. Reich’s partisan attacks.
