Thanks, Marjane for telling it like it is!

As we all know, Wyoming people pride ourselves on taking care of one another. If someone’s car breaks down on a remote road, we can count on someone stopping. I have been the beneficiary of that Wyoming generosity, and I have stopped to help stranded drivers and bicyclists.
If someone suffers from a medical emergency, we all turn out to support them at benefit events.
Benefit dances can never raise enough money to save us from bankruptcy, however — unless either insurance or government steps in to help.
I fear that people across the country see us as selfish because of the votes of our congressional representatives to limit health care for the poor and to limit food stamps. Will Liz Cheney drive our more moderate senator, Mike Enzi, even further to the right?
I hope that we will all remember their actions when it comes time to vote in 2014 and demonstrate that Wyomingmites do care about our neighbors and want them to have enough food to eat and access to health care.
MARJANE AMBLER, Atlantic City
