I know people who are still trying to decide whether or not to vote for Democrats in this election. As shocking as that might seem, it’s true. And as with any important decision that must be made, an important question to answer before deciding to do it is “Why?”
While I know some people simply vote for personalities, let’s assume for sake of argument that some undecided voters are actually thinking people who want to wrestle with what is at stake in this election for them, their families, and for the long-term future of America.
In an honest search, information about key issues should be rather illuminating, if people have an open mind.
Trustworthiness matters on all issues, especially with healthcare. Checking the websites and listening to what they are saying, Democratic candidates are misleading voters by claiming that Republicans will take away the health insurance of every American including coverage for people with preexisting conditions.
That is a lie.
In fact, House Republicans in 2017 passed two healthcare bills, both of which provided coverage for people with preexisting conditions. Not only did both provide coverage but the legislation would have lowered costs for everyone else in every age category. But guess what? Democrats in the House and Senate opposed these bills.
So, the Republicans introduced the Pre-existing Conditions Protection Act of 2017 and the American Health Care Act, voted “yes,” and sent it to the Senate—where every single Democrat in the Senate voted “no” (including vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris).
But why would the Democrats attempt such an obvious lie? It’s like a kid with powdered sugar all over his face swearing to his parents that he did not eat the donuts.
There are only three reasons Democrats might think they could get away with this lie:
- They think Americans so uninformed that we will believe anything they say;
- They don’t believe we will take the time to verify what they are telling us;
- They just lie.
Democrats lying about an issue that is so personal to millions of Americans is understandable considering they voted to block the possibility of adequate, affordable insurance—no matter the preexisting conditions—for everyone in the country. They know they can’t admit that, because if the truth were understood by the American people, who would vote for them? They have to lie.
Today, Democrats are basing their opposition to Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation to the Supreme Court partially on the argument that she might vote to end the Affordable Care Act (ACA). But the truth is that they are the ones who want to eliminate the ACA and they mean to replace it with a government-run, single payer system.
Look it up for yourself. Democrats have been talking about the problems with the ACA for years, using those problems as a setup to impose their idea of Medicaid for All which would take away private insurance for everyone.
Democrats are afraid that Barrett might vote against current laws that allow unlimited abortion at any time during pregnancy—even to the point of killing a baby who survives a late-term abortion. But that is not mainstream American thinking, not even in left-wing places like New York or California.
Anyone who is still thinking of voting for the Democrats should probably have some understanding of what it will mean financially for his or her family. An impact analysis of the Biden-Harris economic plan versus the Trump-Pence agenda recently completed for Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin should get people’s attention and is another thing easy to find on the Internet.
It explains that if Biden and Harris are elected, their plan will be implemented and cost the average family of four in those states more than $40,000 per year. While the study focuses on those five states, rest assured, the economic harm would be felt by every family in every state.

Democrats also like to say President Trump and the Republicans have mishandled the COVID-19 pandemic. After all, there have been more than 200,000 COVID-19 related deaths.
Of course, that’s not even close to the truth. The World Health Organization (WHO) predicted America would suffer more than 2 million deaths and that our healthcare system would be overwhelmed. But the fact is 90 percent of the deaths predicted by the experts did not occur because the president and the Republicans did, in fact, act quickly and evidently, with accuracy and wisdom. In fact, CDC numbers say that only 6 percent or roughly 13,000 deaths have actually come directly from coronavirus alone and not as a result of some combination of factors.
On top of that our country is not in the “great depression” many predicted—and, let’s be honest—hoped for. And recently, the World Health Organization has been encouraging countries not to lock down their economies. Because of the extraordinary vision our president has demonstrated for getting a vaccine developed, Operation Warp Speed will soon likely have a safe vaccine available for every American who wants it.
Which brings us back to the original question, “Why would anyone vote Democrat?” If you look at the facts and the substance of the issues, the answer should be evident: you should never vote Democrat, not in a million years.
