Letter to Iran new low for GOP
Forty-seven (47) GOP senators stooped the lowest, and North Carolina’s Senators Burr and Tillis are included in that number.
Most Americans want to stop the nuclear ambitions of Iran and stay out of war, yet these Republicans sent a letter to Iran undermining President Obama’s leadership and efforts to diffuse Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Even the New York Times had an editorial that said this GOP action was “disgraceful and irresponsible.”
How low can the Republicans go in their hatred and disrespect of President Obama? I am especially ashamed to have North Carolina’s own Senators Burr and Tillis among that number. Bow your heads in shame!

Dental option for Medicare?
I would like to comment on the dental issues here in NC. I have never had to use the free clinic for dental work, and I’m glad for those that benefit from them. Hats off to all the volunteers and the dentists for what they do for the community!
I have often wondered why dental work is not an option for the Medicare recipients. Oral hygiene is as necessary as having a PCP. Our elected officials need to present this as a bill for consideration; at the very least, the Medicare recipients should have an option whether to opt in or opt out for dental coverage at open enrollment.
Do you suppose one or more of our elected officials will read the editorials? I do hope in the near future this will be addressed.
