National View: GOP can honor McCain's legacy by showing a spine
Much of the nation spend much of the past week honoring the late Sen. John McCain. The Republican Party, however, only seemed to pretend to do so. President Donald Trump's GOP could not care less about the ideals McCain stood for, such as honor, service, and community. The party is...

Reader's View: Keep birth control free from copays
Another effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act could jeopardize reproductive health care for 1.1 million Minnesotans. Given the track record of similar proposals — the U.S. House of Representatives alone has now cast more than 70 votes to repeal the ACA — this new effort...

Reader's View: Protect coverage for pre-existing conditions
Before the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies were free to gouge people seeking coverage for pre-existing conditions or deny such coverage. That led to economic ruin or death for many people. The ACA was intended, at least in part, to stop those practices. It was an attempt...

Reader's View: Buy-in would make health care affordable
The News Tribune's Feb. 23 editorial (Our View: "Go nationwide with Minnesota health gamble") led by stating that Minnesota has won a health insurance gamble. It then went on to prove we actually have lost the bet. Minnesota actually has seen more people become uninsured over the...

Reader's View: Too many in US self-centered
The Bible says it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than it is for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. The rich among us set their own salaries and benefits. As a result, many others cannot afford their products or services. The rich in Washington, D.C.,...
