Letter: Congress has real issues to deal with
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

While President Obama is focusing on the benefits of the health care law, Republicans scheduled three hearings on Wednesday and another on Friday ("Obama: Focus on benefits of health care law," Tribune, Dec. 4). Again? Still?

While we're at it, let's have hearings on:

• the economic impact of job losses due to the sequestration,

• the $24 billion lost due to the govt shutdown,

• the lack of consideration of gun safety legislation in the face of overwhelming support,

• whether austerity or stimulus is better for the economy,

• gerrymandering.

There are a lot worse things going on in our country than people getting health care.
