Reform needs repair
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!
