Enumclaw Courier columnist got it wrong—healthcare reform is step toward socialism

Regarding your new Our Corner staff writer Brian Beckley. Judging by Brian’s photo he looks like a nice young guy, clean cut, college educated, but his youth also makes him ignorant and foolish in his writings. If we want to read liberal crap we can certainly read the failing Seattle Times or the failed P.I. on line. They failed because they cater to liberal/progressives/socialists which are about 25 percent of the population. People like me prefer the truth and the facts that go along with a subject.
