Letter: Fast flux heartbreak

There is nothing more degrading and disappointing to the people who spent their professional lives working on the FFTF (Fast Flux Test Facility) project at Hanford, than to read what you published in a recent paper (US restarts nuclear testing facility in Idaho, Nov. 16).

Letter: Republican tax plan? Bah, humbug!

Nice juxtaposition Nov. 14 on your opinion page. The essay by Rep. Newhouse (After 30 years, it’s time to simplify federal income tax code) hits all the usual talking points on the Republican tax bill by telling people it’s the greatest thing since Nutella. He states pro-growth, pro-family, pro-taxpayer, etc., as if the GOP were the embodiment of Santa Claus. And while I give him some credit by writing that the U.S. tax code needs revision, this latest film-flam (think Ronald Reagan) of the workers for the 1 percent isn’t it.

Letter: Murray’s attempt at health care worth another look

More than half of those at the poverty level in our community are married, have families, are employed, pay taxes and can’t afford health care. The Affordable Care Act gave our neighbors access to affordable health care. On Oct. 17, Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler reluctantly allowed health insurers to charge higher premiums for 2018. These insurance rates will rise 9 to 27 percent!

Letter: Time for special counsel to look at Clinton, Uranium One

I am constantly in search for stories that don’t seem to make the TCH. Among the many is the sale of 20 percent of the U.S. uranium production to Russia without the knowledge of Congress. Somehow during this process, the Clinton’s personally enriched themselves and the Clinton Foundation received $145 million. The foundation is an organization with exceptionally high overhead costs. Democrats claimed “no foul” because transit permits were not issued.
