and now a word from my uncle:
I got pretty disgusted reading the Albuquerque Journal article describing how the Democrats in the New Mexico state delegation want fixes to ObamaCare. They'd like to see some fine tuning.
We have a stagnant economy in this country, employers are afraid to hire anyone and when they do, they're part-timers to avoid the hassle and penalties of Obamacare. People are losing the insurance policies they liked after being lied to by Obama, canceled insurance is being replaced by more expensive plans with stratospheric deductibles and poorer coverage, and our delegation says we need 'fine tuning'? Do they live on Planet Stupid?
What's particularly galling is Senator Tom Udall's statement regarding 'affordable' health care, "I think most of our citizens agree that would be a good thing especially in a state like New Mexico." Really? When has he even talked to us New Mexicans? Both Udall and Senator Martin Heinrich don invisibility cloaks whenever they enter this state. They NEVER talk to us. They are more insulated from our opinions than uranium is of paper in the WIPP caverns at Carlsbad. Mr. Udall should start by standing before a town hall meeting and fielding honest questions instead of hiding under his desk.
Even the words from Representatives Ben Ray Lujan and Michelle Lujan Grisham ring hollow. Mr. Lujan says that during the time he spent in hospitals during his father's illness, he heard many health care horror stories. Apparently, though, he is deaf to the horror stories he himself has created by voting for ObamaCare. Ms. Grisham is also deaf to the wishes of her constituents by telling us, quite breathlessly, I'm sure, that "People don't want to repeal the Affordable Care Act". Put it to a vote, Madam Representative, and we'll show you what we really think about this legislation.
Sorry, Mr. Udall, Mr. Heinrich, Ms. Grisham, and Mr. Lujan but if you had READ the bill before you passed it, if you had CONSIDERED the bill before you passed it, if you had DEBATED the bill before you passed it, if you had voted on it in DAYLIGHT instead of in the middle of the night before you passed it, this country would NOT be in the mess you have created for us.
No amount of fine tuning can fix this over-priced load of Washington manure. Scrap it and replace it with a plan based on reality instead of Democrat Party fantasies.
