To the editor:

The Bush administration and the Republican leadership in Congress have taken away the American dream. That is why I'll be supporting Bruce Lunsford for the U.S. Senate.

He has the support of labor unions, which are a driving force in Kentucky politics. He is willing to work with all sides to get things done. Lunsford's agenda is progressive, focusing on universal health care, tax relief for the middle class instead of the wealthy, keeping the estate tax, making college more affordable and ending the war.

When Sen. Mitch McConnell led the charge to cut Medicare, which caused an industry-wide meltdown and damaged the long-term care industry, Lunsford was able to lead his company through while protecting patients and jobs.

McConnell protects big oil companies and prescription drug companies instead of protecting Kentuckians. It's time to bring him home for good. Join me in supporting Lunsford.
