State the obvious


I can’t decide if High Country News is part of the problem or not (“House of Misrepresentatives,” 10/27/14). You seem to be deathly afraid of offending Republicans; every time you publish something like this, it’s always “Congress” doing it, never “Republicans in Congress.” At least you used the “R,” and I noticed it’s all “R”s. Why not just state the obvious? Unless we are willing to admit the truth, that the Republican Party has been waging a war on the environment since at least 2000, and really starting with Reagan, we will never solve any of these problems.
