Encouraged that Kelly joined Sinema in opposing the Medicare for all push

Dear Editor,

Arizona is lucky to have mostly moderate members in Congress. Yes, there are a few to the far left or right, but for the most part, our Representatives seem to know that most Arizonans want common-sense solutions instead of partisan rhetoric. That is why I was encouraged that Democrat candidate Mark Kelly joined Senator Sinema in opposing the Medicare for all push. They know that kicking millions of Arizonans off their health insurance will create a bigger mess than what we have now, and that the answer to our health care problems comes in bringing down costs and getting more folks covered. I know that Rep. Kirkpatrick once had that position as well, but has since joined the Medicare for all crowd. I hope that she will reconsider, because being a common-sense moderate on this particular issue is the only way we’ll get real problems fixed.

Thank you,
Liliana Grijalva
