Regarding "Examine the descriptions used" (Feb. 3, Letters): Political discourse should be fun. However, the level of discussion is not elevated when one side attributes vile and venal motives to the other. Most Republicans that I know are equally disenchanted with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. Race can hardly be a factor there.
I object to the fact that the level of debt for everybody in the U.S. will climb from $40,000 to $45,000 in one year. I resent the fact that the government is attempting to fund health care by debt and shifting the burden to the states via yet one more unfunded mandate (Medicare to Medicaid). If you wish to debate these issues, fine, but don't presume to know my motives, especially while race-baiting and making racist statements.
