|Affordable health care welcomed by many seniors|
Letter to the Editor:
I am writing this on the first day of Obamacare, the affordable health-care law, which goes into effect today despite the Tea Party’s effort to stop the law.
In the process, they, led by Tea Party Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), also shut down the government. The party of no is also the party of not getting anything done. I?hope they are happy taking their paychecks that we, the people, pay them while others have none. I can’t believe they did this while trying to deny 50 million people health care while they have theirs.What makes them so mean? Well they can take their marbles and go home now because they accomplished nothing.
Many of my friends are signing up for health insurance today that they couldn’t get before. They are so happy to finally have the chance. I am already enjoying parts of it that went into effect as are my married children. They are now able to keep their college children on their insurance until they are 26 years of age. My grandchildren have benefits they were never able to have when our children were in college.
We know there will be some problems along the way, but they should all be trying to work them out, not destroy the whole affordable health-care law!
Now, we seniors, as well as others, can all rest easy because we cannot be denied health-care insurance for something as common as high blood pressure. These pre-existing conditions no longer exist and most of the elderly have them.
Maybe if the congressmen start voting with their conscience, instead of their Tea Party brain, we can get some common sense back in Washington.
Instead of saying my way or the highway, start working together like they did in the old days. Obstruction never gets anything good done, so let’s start to all be friends again. They did it in the past, we can do it again. Many of my friends are Republicans and we get along just fine.
