To the editor:
I would like to thank the Democrats who shoved Social Security and Medicare down our throats years ago. I also thank the ones who took over from a Republican administration that took a country that was running a surplus and led it into a recession, leaving us with a projected $1.2 trillion budget deficit.
I saw a report the other day where we added more than 200,000 jobs for the fifth straight month and it was 52 straight months we had added jobs. Just compare that with losing as many as 700,000 a month, which happened under President Bush.
I know one person who works and signed up for insurance under the Affordable Care Act. This person’s premiums went down from $1,300 a month to $169 a month. They sure didn’t triple, did they? And those “millions of people losing their insurance” are actually getting better insurance. I saw a poll the other day where I think it was 72 percent of Republicans who like the insurance they got under the ACA better than the insurance they had.
So let’s get away from Fox News and political spin and get back to reality and confess that the ACA is not as bad as some try to make it look. And, the economy is a whole lot better than it was in 2008.
Oh, and why are executive orders and recess appointments so bad now while President Bush used them a whole lot more? And what does Rep. Richard Hudson plan on doing about all the millions of people who would lose their health insurance if he successfully repealed the ACA?
It’s kinda funny to see Rep. Hudson talking about partisan politics while that is what his whole column was. He needs to get that partisan beam out of his eye and he could see how to help the U.S. House stop playing games and start working together for the good of the good old USA.
