Letter: Lockhart’s, GOP legislators’ decisions on health care may cost lives
First Published Mar 11 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Mar 11 2014 01:01 am

Unfortunately we don’t need to look outside of Utah for so called health-care "death panels." We have House Speaker Becky Lockhart, and a majority of the GOP members of the Legislature making these decisions.

Apparently, the critical need for someone getting cancer treatment, etc., has gotten lost in a maze of political gamesmanship. I don’t know about Becky and the boys, but I would be horrified if I thought my vote would cost a child or any citizen of our state their life. Am I the only citizen of the state who feels this way?
