The Affordable Care Act...


Fri, Jul 18th, 2014
Posted in Harmony Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

I’m puzzled by Rep. Greg David’s scorching condemnation of The Affordable Care Act, aka “ObamaCare.” He keeps referring to some chimerical, long suffering 16,000. His opposition flies in the face of the success of the ACA, in spite of some problems that are being worked out. In Minnesota, there are 170,000 enrollees, which is 35,000 more than the target number! 47,000 are private plan enrollees, 34,000 Minnesota care enrollees, and 88,000 Medicaid enrollees. Perhaps the mythical 16,000 Mr. Davids refers to are included in 36,000 who attempted to enroll, but ran into some glitches, which are being worked out. According to Minnesota’s State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC), as of June 14 the state uninsured population is the lowest in recorded history, thanks to ObamaCare. It has gone from 445,000 to 264,000. Not bad! Of course to negativists like Davids the glass is always half empty. Sure, there are all sorts of horror stories, many fabricated or blown out of proportion. But numbers, statistics, and facts do not lie. Of course, the learned salon from Preston never let facts get in the way of his right wing ideology.

To the Editor, After reading Rep. Greg Davids’ vitriolic attack against ObamaCare, I can only conclude he’s for full repeal. This puts him at odds with mainstream Republicans who have abandoned this approach recently, conceding ObamaCare is t .....
