To the editor:
As Scott Flitcraft decided to respond to Steven Bruner’s letter, I am moved to respond in kind.
Flitcraft bases his rebuttal to Bruner on three points: the country and the economy are not better off than four years ago; he agrees we have poor memories; and we have “a health care bill that the majority of the country would like to see repealed.”
It appears that Flitcraft, at least, certainly has a poor memory. He seems to forget that, when President Obama took office, the economy was in free fall. Are we better off? We were headed for bread lines, now we’re headed for a return to prosperity.
Regarding the Affordable Care Act, when asked if “Obamacare” should be repealed, a selection of recent polls shows just over 50% in favor. However, many of these respondents indicate they feel the law didn’t go far enough. In addition, when asked about specific provisions of the law, such as covering pre-existing conditions, a large majority are in favor.
Simply put, Flitcraft has bought the Republican “Obamacare” propaganda. When folks are asked if they like BS, they’ll say no. Ask them if they like organic fertilizer and they’ll say yes.
