What would be smart

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

It seems to me that it would make a lot more sense if Congress broke up “re­peal and re­form” of Oba­macare into pieces and passed the things that they can all agree upon. Let’s face it, they are never go­ing to agree on one mam­moth bill that at­tempts to ad­dress ev­ery­thing. That’s like look­ing for a way to change lead into gold.

If we all agree that some part of it is not work­ing, then re­peal only that part. If some­thing needs a law to make it le­gal to do some­thing that we can’t cur­rently do, like have in­sur­ance com­pa­nies sell health-care poli­cies across state lines, then ad­dress that separately.

I guess that all that I’m say­ing is that half a loaf is bet­ter than no loaf at all. JOE WHALEN North Lit­tle Rock
