Assembly GOP has no right to deceive public

Re "Assembly GOP will keep health site" (Another View, Dec. 10): Connie Conway's self-pitying column deserves a response. She has a right to free speech, but as a public servant, she doesn't have a right to deceive the public. If she has something to say about the health care law, she needs to put state her opinions clearly on the website. She should not direct taxpayers to a phony look-alike of the official California state website. Being called on her dirty tricks is not government censorship. It's being held accountable, and Conway's party used to believe in that. This health care law, originally proposed by the Republican-based Heritage Foundation, is not some radical socialist agenda. It was designed to address the fact that up until now, tens of thousands of Americans were dying each year due to lack of access to health care. No wonder she has to rely on deception to argue against it.
