Letter: Vital legislation, no representation
I am horrified that (purportedly) only three Democrats crafted the Obama Health Care bill, behind a closed door. Surely, had a Republican been able to locate that door, there would have been a sign stating: "No Republicans need apply." This means that there are millions and millions...

Letter: Abortion, health care don't go together
Like many families across the country, my own family is struggling to make ends meet, pay the bills and stay afloat. President Obama wants to tax families even more to pay for the trillion-dollar healthcare bill. But that's not the worst of it. He is mandating that abortion be covered...
