“They’re not even getting the education I received when I was growing up,” she said.

“Put a woman in office; I guarantee our country will be straightened out in four years.”

With the potential for cuts happening in many areas, McCoy said, it’s not going to go unnoticed.

“I think it’s going to affect all of America in one way or another because they’ve been cutting in the wrong areas.”
