Letter: Do your job, Tipton

Do your job, Tipton

Editor's note: The following is an open letter to U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton (R-Cortez).

Your actions are hurting the country and your constituents. Government agencies are major employers in your district. You have put them out of work. This affects everybody in your district.

While you shut down the government, you continue to collect your paycheck and enjoy all your benefits, including health care that you want to deny to your constituents.

There are so many people in your congressional district who can't afford health care.

The Affordable Healthcare Act (known to you as Obamacare) was designed to help people get health care.

It's time to act like a grown-up and do your job.
