Bashing of Affordable Care Act ignores the positives

LaceyJanuary 2, 2014 

Congratulations to The Olympian for printing one of the most offensive and self-serving articles I have ever read in your paper. Kathleen Rogers was so busy patting herself on the back and deriding President Barack Obama that I am surprised she had time to finish the article.

How nice that her family has insurance and oh-so-sad they might have to pay a bit more under the Affordable Care Act.

No mention of the thousands, nay, millions who now can buy health insurance when once they were denied due to pre-exisiting conditions. Let’s not think of anyone but our own comfortable selves. No mention of the fact that we will be, at last, among other first-world nations whose citizens can all access health care.

Is she the idea of a fair-minded Board of Contributors member?

The Olympian is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
