The at­tack on “free­dom of choice” came from Repub­li­cans and crypto-Repub­li­cans as they as­sailed the rights of women to ac­cess re­pro­duc­tive health­care.

Ju­dith Wilkin­son-Hiam as­sails the fed­eral gov­ern­ment as ru­in­ing So­cial Se­cu­rity, Medi­care, Am­trak and the Post Of­fice (“ … no end in sight …,” Let­ters, March 29, p. 26). In fact, those are fed­eral pro­grams that have been un­der at­tack since the Rea­gan ad­min­is­tra­tion by Repub­li­cans.

Thanks to Ge­orge W. Bush, we al­ready live in a ba­nana repub­lic: Our Con­sti­tu­tion has been trashed, our civil rights de­nied and the dem­a­gogues rule the air­waves (and blogs).
