LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Obamacare unfixable, needs to be scrapped

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

I urge all Republican members of Congress to oppose any and all amendments that those scared Democrats up for re-election have proposed to what is possibly the most poorly named law in the history of the world: The Affordable Care Act.

I know the Three Musketeers of liberty, GOP Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Mike Lee of Utah, will stand firm. It is the spineless Republicans, such as House Speaker John A. Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who worry me.

Obamacare is a very bad law, and it needs to be scrapped and replaced with a measure that contains the essential ingredients to lower health care costs. These include “loser pays” tort reform, portability and health care savings accounts, just to name a few common-sense conservative proposals.

Obamacare is so bad that President Obama has changed it by presidential decree more than 30 times already. It is a stupid law, and in the words of comedian Ron White, “You can’t fix stupid.”
