Thank you, Democrats. I just found out my company’s health insurance is going up 33 percent due to Obamacare.

Thank you, Democrats. I just found out my company’s health insurance is going up 33 percent due to Obamacare.

Kathleen Sebelius needs to resign, but please don’t let her come back to Kansas.

Reps. Mike Pompeo and Tim Huelskamp want Sebelius gone. The entire Kansas congressional delegation should be gone, too. Anyone who performs as badly as Congress should be voted out.

Republicans are “outraged” about the ACA computer problems and that people are not able to sign up. The GOP just forced a 16-day shutdown of the government that cost taxpayers $24 billion in their attempt to undermine the ACA. Why are they whining? They should be thrilled.

They said the huge volume of traffic is what has destroyed the rollout of Obamacare. There are some porn sites that have more traffic than that on a daily basis and they don’t crash. Does this mean that Obamacare is worse than porn?

We are lucky to have Sam Brownback as governor. He is leading Kansas in the right direction, from a high-tax state to a low-tax state. The California and Texas models scream out. Both are mega-states, but California is on its financial knees while Texas is soaring.

Let’s hope our touring Kansas legislators hear the bottom line. A quality education leads to jobs. Politicians who only serve the wealthy and don’t make education and health a priority aren’t helping Kansans, nor our state.

Way to go, Kris Kobach (“Kansas is safeguarding integrity of elections,” Oct. 26 Opinion). It’s about time someone in political office does what he says he will do in his campaign. A USA Today poll reveals 8 in 10 Americans support voters showing ID, and 70 percent of Democrats surveyed were OK with it.

Eagle sportswriter Bob Lutz has flip-flopped on the Redskins name and is now against North High’s mascot. Will he go after the other 60-plus schools across America with Redskins as mascots? Or maybe the Mid-America All-Indian Center, putting a stop to its ceremonial dances?

If we are going to OK the Redskins name, then we need to name a baseball, football or hockey team named the Crackers. End of discussion.

To the waiter at a Cajun restaurant in northeast Wichita: You didn’t get a tip because the service was lousy. And I won’t be back because of your outrageous banter with the manager, loud enough that everyone could hear, about the fact that I left no tip.
