Republican opposition is shameful
Syndicated columnist Froma Harrop asks in her first paragraph why, “other than crude political posturing,” would congressional Republicans want President Obama’s Affordable Care Act to fail? [“Column: Keep the health-reform train rolling past the naysayers,” Opinion, July 13.]
She follows with 14 paragraphs of commentary. All she needed was her first sentence after the question: “Our health-care system has been milking the taxpayers, the government and individuals for decades.”
Continuing such shameful profiteering from human illness is exactly why the Republicans oppose reform. Nothing more need be said.
