Our senators and representatives should be very careful about how they vote for a new health care law. The stated Republican objective for this new bill is to “remove and replace Obamacare.” That is not what the taxpayers pay their congressional representatives to do. Elected officials are paid to improve or support the taxpayers who pay them, to make things better. The way you state the objective tells us that you are not doing your job.
Democrats and Republicans have disagreed on many subjects for centuries, but they do come together and pass laws of value to the nation they represent. Here is a huge opportunity for such cooperation.
The current health care system has many ﬂaws. The objective you are elected and paid to do is to make it better. Solve the problems of an imperfect bill. The objective of shooting down a plan because it came from a different political party is a dereliction of duty.
Let us move forward. Don’t denigrate your opponent. Work with him to make something better than either of you can do alone. Cooperation is the characteristic of Man that makes him the dominant species on earth. Use it.
