NRA money trumps morality Dear Editor, Regarding the Florida school massacre, what is more important, the Second Amendment and the NRA, or the lives of our children and grandchildren?

Health care concerns for Congressman Bishop

Dear Editor, Our Representative Mike Bishop voted for a tax bill which eliminates the mandate to buy health insurance under ACA. This Republican tax bill will increase health insurance premiums for all of us, making healthcare less affordable and increasing the number of uninsured people.
