My friend Martin again makes a point that many of  us gat and Congress doesn’t.

Repeal hurts those we know who need healthcare

Abel Oldsworth, my reticent friend, cannot understand the repeated call for repeal of the Affordable Health Care Act.  He says most of us know someone who is out of work, works part time, is a college student, or has disabilities who now can afford a visit to a doctor or a clinic. They do not have to use costlier emergency rooms for their primary care or wait until they have multiple problems before seeking care.  Look at how Medicare and Medicaid coverages have aided the elderly and those going through disastrous accidents and illnesses.  In contrast, many objecting lawmakers have enrolled in premium plans under the Act while shouting their opposition.

Many lawmakers contend that affordable Health Care coverage is regretful

Although saving people’s money and lives might be beneficial.

But it’s those uninsured folks’ defects

Which outweigh the spending effects,

And thus warrant the repeal as providential.
