Conservative Modoc County, in far Northern California, supports and is being helped by the Affordable Care Act. Yet Northern California Congressman Doug LaMalfa voted against it. Thus costing 23 million Americans their healthcare; thousands of them in far Northern California. He just doesn’t get it.
Congressman LaMalfa hid from reporters and would not defend his position for this news report for NPR.
On environmental issues, Ronald Reagan said, “Preservation of our enviro…nment is not a liberal or conservative challenge, its common sense.” In that same spirit, I say the same is true for healthcare. I say, allowing people to see a doctor is also just common sense. Congressman LaMalfa doesn’t have this common sense. He just doesn’t get it.
Yes, there are problems with the Affordable Care Act. We need to fix them. The first fix needs to be replacing an out of touch congressman who is more interested in backing his political party than he is in actually exercising common sense.
