Doctors too should be held accountable
It was a pleasant surprise to read that a federal judge is actually holding a doctor responsible for her actions by sentencing prison time as well as a monetary fine, even though the penalty imposed was much less than would have been imposed had a street junkie been doing essentially the same thing.
Since West Virginia has basically removed from doctors any responsibility for the quality of their work, the state should at least make some effort to impose some accountability at some level. It would be comforting to the general population to know that when doctors negligently or purposely kill their patients, some action would be taken by some state authority.
When accountability for their work is removed from any class of service workers, society suffers.
Has any doctor in West Virginia ever been tried for negligent homicide?
Republicans aren't who they used to be
The Republican Party has changed. Voters need to realize that the Republican Party has changed radically.
Presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan would be upset with those who are currently in the House of Representatives.
They are driven by power and influence and have become self-serving and strong-willed, which makes them arrogant.
They no longer function in a manner that helps people but devote their energies to passing legislation that will benefit the rich and those who support them.
West Virginia can no longer support these people because they have forgotten why they were sent to Congress. They are supposed to support legislation that will benefit all of our people and legislation that will enable us to remain a strong and caring nation.
