Letters to the Editor
Regarding “2 more GOP senators oppose health bill, killing it for now” (July 18): Thanks are due to U.S. Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Jerry Moran, R-Kan., for not supporting the passage of the GOP health care reform legislation that was roundly criticized by physician groups, medical insurers and hospitals as potentially disastrous for the country. With so many of their Republican colleagues in the Senate apparently ready to vote for this bill regardless of its many flaws, I have to wonder if North Carolina Sens. Richard Burr and Thom Tillis were at the ready to support it as well.
