The Affordable Care Act is Needed for All

To the Editor,

I read the letter Greg Davids had in the Journal May 26 and I thought to myself, ‘good grief, Greg, isn’t there something you can be positive about?’ It appeared that you cherry-picked whatever negative you could find in the Affordable Care Act. (ACA) Everything new, from laws to cars has teething problems. Most every car manufacturer has had recalls because of some problem and millions of cars have been recalled. Most likely you have experienced a recall; and if you did I bet you took it in and had the problem fixed. I do not think you said to yourself, “well that is the last time I’ll buy a car and I‘ll do whatever I can to get rid of cars in this country.” The ACA is quite new legislation, and so I ask you, Greg, ‘what are you doing to help it gain traction? What are you doing to help implement it?’ Millions of uninsured folks in our country now have insurance they have never been able to have before.

When I have talked to you, you have told me what a good church person you are. So therefore you know that “you should love your neighbor.” As a representative you get the taxpayers to pay for your good health care coverage, and I, as a senior citizen get Medicare, compliments of the taxpayers. So Greg, don’t you think we should all work for the time when ALL OUR NEIGHBORS can relax by having health insurance coverage?
