REPRIEVE FOR AFFORDABLE CARE ACT
The Trump/Ryan Health Care Act has been side-lined for now for the wrong reason – only because a minority group within the Republican Party refused to vote for it as they wanted even more draconian measures – not because the Act was a travesty against efforts to provide reasonable health care for the vast majority of American citizens.
How about the rest of the Republican Representatives, or some of them, meeting with some Democrat Representatives – they could actually try to examine the ACA aka Obama Care to adjust for more cost effectiveness and efficiency. Some adjustments were expected to be necessary after that legislation was implemented. Congress could actually perform some meaningful work to earn the salary we hired/elected them to do.
Schmidley's Scribblings daughter reports her mother has passed away. I've enjoyed visiting this blogger who offered a true elder's perspective, garnered from years of significant work in our government and a master's degree in history obtained in her seventies. She was grounded in contemporary life but respected the influence of previous generations she explored in her genealogy. Her observations were concise, evidencing humor with a sharp wit. I only knew her through a few years of blogging, but I'll miss her photos, stories, commentary on the world we live in.
