Health care plan would have hurt many families

Dear Editor:

The proposed Graham-Cassidy bill would have negatively affected millions of Americans and their families. Before the proposed bill failed, the Congressional Budget Office stated that the plan would cause a 20 percent premium spike and would increase the number of uninsured by 16 million Americans.

Tuesday, October 17, 2017 by JACQUELYN YOUST in Opinion

In the midst of recent tragedies and current events, the topic of civility comes to the forefront. By definition, civility is formal politeness and courtesy in behavior or speech, focusing on other people rather than our own self interests. George Washington wrote “Rules of Civility and Decent Behavior.” Today most of these rules seem outdated.

However, the core message remains relevant; setting aside our self-interests and focusing on respecting others.
