Several of you responded to our editorial on Medicaid
Funding. Michael Graham Sr. emailed:
"Medical costs are out of control, but it seems to me we are going about fixing
the problem backwards. Instead of
pumping more money into the system or cutting benefits, why not control the
ridiculous prices most of the medical suppliers and providers charge insurance
companies and Medicare."
Scott Muncy emailed: "We should model our healthcare system
after Canada and put everyone on the same playing field."
Our editorials on Candidate Visits prompted an email from
Emily Emery: "We all are America – 50 states. Candidates only visit a few states and they make it seem like only a few
states are important."
And our Voting editorial prompted many facebook posts. Adam Wright pointed out that the House of
Representatives, who vote for the President in case of an electoral college
tie, did pick Thomas Jefferson as President over Aaron Burr and John Quincy
Adams over Andrew Jackson when those races ended tied in the electoral college.
Thank you Adam and thanks to all for offering your thoughts
and comments. We appreciate all of them
and encourage more!
