Time to stop play­ing games with Amer­i­cans’ health­care

Modern Healthcare - - COMMENT -

Re­gard­ing Mod­ern Health­care’s on­line poll ask­ing, “Do you sup­port Pres­i­dent Trump’s ef­forts to al­ter ACA in­sur­ance rules?” I say un­der no cir­cum­stances. It is time for our Washington politi­cians, all of them, to put aside party dif­fer­ences and place Amer­i­can lives at the fore­front of their con­ver­sa­tions, de­lib­er­a­tions and dis­cus­sions.

If they truly be­lieve the cur­rent law is in­suf­fi­cient in its cur­rent form, then sim­ply fo­cus on fixing it, don’t be small-minded, petty, solely in­ter- ested in your re­spec­tive turfs and take ill-ad­vised and in­cred­i­bly ill-in­formed shots at it. It is lit­er­ally the health of the Amer­i­can peo­ple that is at stake. It is time to put aside all egos, start­ing at the top. Stop play­ing self-serv­ing games and rec­og­nize the true se­ri­ous­ness in what is in­volved here. John Hol­stein Di­rec­tor of client devel­op­ment Zotec Part­ners Bala Cyn­wyd, Pa.
