Possible reason for shooting

First of all, let me state that absolutely nothing justifies the massacre that took place in Arizona last Saturday. However, the press is full of possible reasons this mentally challenged young man did what he did. They include right-wing talk radio, Sarah Palin, the huge difference between Conservatives and Liberals in what is best for our country economically, etc. As more information about this young man becomes available, it seems none of these apply in this case. What I find very interesting is that the way our Democrat legislators in Washington (including, in particular, President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid) pushed the health care bill through against the will of a majority of the American people is never mentioned as a possible reason for violent action by a mentally deranged person. Common sense tells me this should be near the top of the list when looking for reasons for violence in America during this period in our history. DAVE IMGRUND, Auburn
