Letter To The Editor

Where are the Republicans?

by Dennis Thompson, Newnan

Repeal, repeal, repeal.

The Republicans have again begun their mindless, monotonous rant to repeal Obamacare.

Nothing is perfect, and I am sure there are things in the Affordable Heath Care Act that can be improved upon, but the Republicans have no interest in that. Prior to the act being passed, over 75% of the American people were in favor of health care reform, but the Republicans came up with nothing and refused to even participate in its discussion, planning, or passage.

They have no interest in its revision or replacement. In the 67 years since President Truman’s first attempt at health care reform, the Republicans have made absolutely no serious attempt to do anything themselves, so there is no reason to believe they will do anything now. All they ever do is obstruct.

Health care costs are out of control and people should not be forced to endure sickness and death simply because they are unable to pay for treatment. If Obamacare is ever repealed, and if the Republicans have their way, we will never see health care reform again.
