The fear mongering has yet to leave

Your article in Sunday's paper "Health care rumors unfounded" (Aug. 9) shows that the fear-mongering demagoguery of the Bush-Cheney administration hasn't lost its following among the right-wing, especially in the quotes of Congressman Howard P. "Buck" McKeon regarding claims of government-assisted suicide in the proposed health care reform measures.

President Obama's attempt to bring health care to tens of millions of Americans who go without may not be ready to be rolled out just yet, but at least he's addressing a critical issue that leaves so many of our fellow citizens without appropriate health care and one step away from bankruptcy.

The evolution of a society is measured by how well it treats the least among its members.

It's time the moneyed self-interests in this country stop looking to feather their own nests at the expense of the less fortunate.

So much for "conservative Christian values."
