Letters to the editor on Medicare dialysis cuts, same-sex marriage, Constitution, ashamed of U.S., traffic rules

As a dialysis professional, I have oversight for some of the sickest patients in our community. That’s why I’m worried about budget cuts announced on July 1. The severe Medicare cuts could reduce dialysis services and force clinic closures at a time when kidney disease is escalating. It’s heartbreaking and unjust to make critically ill people accept reduced care or travel longer distances for lifesaving dialysis.
