Korbin, the dog
Re “Republican senators urge outright repeal” (Page 1A, July 1) and “Dog discovered at Roseville park with severe head injury” (Page 5A, July 1): Korbin, a small brown dog, was injured, and will be tenderly nursed back to health by Placer County SPCA. On the same day, The Sacramento Bee reported that Congress wants to take health care from humans. Children with leukemia will be denied Medicaid. The disabled will not have access to medications. Women will die because they cannot get mammograms. What is wrong that we treat dogs better than Congress wants to treat humans.
Sheila Syder, Sacramento
Several congressional members suggest a repeal-then-replace approach to modifying existing health care coverage. Would they be willing to remove their own coverage until the new plan is in place? I doubt it.

Re “Trump commission on voting fraud asks states for voter data” (sacbee.com, June 30): President Donald Trump declares states that refuse to reveal personal and private voter information must be hiding something. How many times has he been asked to reveal his tax records? A true leader does not ask others to do what he refuses. His duplicity astounds.

Re “A conservative California minister supported Trump. Now, he’s getting deported.” (sacbee.com, July 2): I pity the poor minister facing deportation. But as many Trump supporters are discovering, what they thought was his stick it in your face persona they love, is encapsulated in one word: “karma.”
Jerry Delezenski, Wilton
