Editor:

Nothing the Republicans have conjured up to derail the Affordable Care Act can serve that purpose better then the administration’s apparent sloppy preparation and apparent lack of concern on “putting their best foot forward” in rolling out this vital program.

As a result, we may never know how good this needed program could be. I just can’t believe that this full-of-glitches beginning will not have lasting ill effects on its acceptance and effectiveness. How could the administrators not know, under the contentious circumstances, how imperative an almost-seamless rollout was? Unbelievable!

The farm subsidy enables you to drink three dollar milk rather than seven to eight dollar milk, so I guess that we all drink from the government cow.

As long as the health care industry remains a monopoly, costs will continue to rise.

My simple solution to the heath care problem - If you have insurance wear a wristband or perhaps a small tatoo indicating you have insurance - That way the doctors know who to treat and who not to treat. Like everything else ... More ›
