Re­form needs re­pair

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Well, we dodged a bul­let with Trump­care, no credit to our leg­is­la­tors. Now it’s safe for Sens. Tom Cot­ton and John Booz­man to come out in fa­vor of it. They know it won’t pass, so they can mol­lify their con­ser­va­tive base and not have to live with the con­se­quences. Let’s hope they soon re­al­ize that there is no way to rec­on­cile the ex­tremes in the GOP, and just hold their noses and work with the Democrats to get a good bill passed.

If the Se­nate does noth­ing, pre­mi­ums will con­tinue to go up, and peo­ple like me will no longer have med­i­cal in­sur­ance. It may be avail­able, but if I can’t pay for it, I don’t have it.

The Af­ford­able Care Act needs to be fixed. Call it re­peal if that makes it more palat­able—just fix it!
