Letter: Effective government needed for nation, society to survive, she says

TO THE EDITOR: We need effective government in order to survive as a nation and a civilized society.

Passage of fledgling health system reform indicates that the Obama administration is willing to take responsibility to restore government crippled by the Bush administration. Pitiful and primitive indeed are death threats and attacks on offices of members of Congress and the Senate, fulfilling their duties as legislators, by those deceived and incited to violence by "leaders" of the Republican party.

This is a time to raise our individual voices in support of elected representatives who are taking the difficult steps to return America to civility, decency, equal rights and a fair measure of opportunity.
