In Sunday’s (March 9) paper were two interesting articles in Section B.
The first was our new senator claiming that Steve Daines is cruel and “only seeks to preserve privilege.”
I believe privilege can have more than one meaning. Democratic U.S. Sen. John Walsh’s party believes that Obamacare is great because it allows people to follow their dreams and not be tied to any particular job, in order to maintain health insurance. I guess that’s a great privilege because the taxpayers have their backs.
In a companion article, Planned Parenthood brags about helping re-elect U.S. Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., and they will work hard to re-elect Walsh. So they admit to being a PAC and I’m supposed to believe none of the taxpayer funds get mixed with their political funds?
One more subject that’s been in several letters to the editor. I continue to be confused by the Missoula County attorney’s fight with the Department of Justice. Why didn’t he just sign the DOJ’s proposed agreement, then after the dust settled he could play the University of Montana’s “get-out-of-agreement card” by telling the DOJ that some of his staff don’t feel right about having their names listed on some record. He could assure the DOJ that Missoula County is a good liberal, Democratic-leaning county and everything will be OK. After all, according to the Democrats, it’s the Republicans who have the war on women, and the Democrats are clean.
