Letter to the editor:

Our elected leaders are abusing power

In a letter to the editor Wednesday, Tim Farkas expressed his concern that Rep. Joe Heck would (like so many other Republicans) hold the country hostage over the health care bill.

It does not surprise me that this is happening again. We have elected individuals who think they are above the law.

Our senators and representatives, both Democrats and Republicans, have exempted themselves from our world, Social Security, health care, their children’s student loans — the list goes on.

We need to put a stop to the abuse by those we elect.

Common sense would be a nice change
