Questions senators on health care


In The Bellingham Herald's Whatcom View section on March 26, Democrat Sen. Patty Murray wrote an article speaking lovingly of the Affordable Care Act and the "tangible and positive impact it has had." Perhaps she missed the Associated Press article in The Herald three days earlier reporting that 750 employees at Indiana University were having their work hours cut as a result of Obamacare. Somehow, I don't think those 750 people, who now will receive smaller paychecks, are experiencing the "tangible and positive impact" she talks about.

Perhaps Democrat Sen. Murray should show this article to Democrat Sen. Harry Reid as he had the audacity to stand on the floor of the Senate and announce that all the people telling of poor experiences with the Affordable Care Act are just making up lies. Do these Senators have no honor?
