The Editor:
In a newspaper article published on March 26, Democratic Senator Patty Murray wrote lovingly of the Affordable Care Act and the “tangible and positive impact it has had.” Perhaps she missed the Associated Press article published in the same newspaper just 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 Senator Murray should show the first article to Democratic Senator Harry Reid, as he had the audacity to stand on the floor of the Senate and announce that all the people telling of their poor experiences with the Affordable Care Act are just making up lies. Have these senators completely lost touch with reality? Shame on those who continue to vote them back into office.

Letters must not exceed 350 words and may be edited or rejected for reasons of legality, length and good taste. Thank you letters are limited to five individuals or groups. A fresh viewpoint on matters of general interest to local readers will increase the likelihood of publication. Writers should avoid personal invective. Unsigned letters will not be accepted for publication. Requests for withholding names will be considered on an individual basis. Only one letter per month from an individual correspondent will be published.
