Defunding essential programs/services is anti-solution. Better funding allocations is essential - especially of programs directly affecting systemic, inequitable, social, & cultural problems. To my all-Republican congressmen - Luetkemeyer, Blunt, & Hawley: Great opportunities are present for legislators to move toward a better future for America & ALL Americans. Lawmakers need to work more conscientiously, more immediately, & more directly for the common good of all people & the earth on which we live. Please be more aware of doing the right (as in good) thing, than being on the “right” (as in anti-left).
