Letter: Well-qualified

October 18, 2013


To the editor:

I was somewhat puzzled to read in the Tuesday Journal-World that the health care navigator, Rosilyn Wells was being criticized for not having adequate credentials for holding her position at Heartland Community Health Center. She assists clients to access insurance through the Affordable Health Care Act.

I am not familiar with the either the Daily Caller or the Drudge Report. Perhaps Drudge is a good name for the website. This source was concerned because of Ms. Wells’ financial background that includes a history of outstanding medical bills. Quite to the contrary, I say that Ms. Wells is exceptionally qualified to offer leadership in helping uninsured citizens access insurance through the Affordable Care Act.

Instead of being a victim of our economic inequality, Ms. Well has turned her life into one of advocacy to insure that others won’t have to endure financial hardship due to inadequate health care access. Kudos to Ms. Wells for using her story to help others!

Yes allow the woman to do her work and enjoy employment.

We know this is about keeping Obamacare out of Kansas. We know this has roots in Topeka , Kansas. We also know this is dirty politics.

"In spite of the wildly speculative and false stories of arms for hostages and alleged ransom payments, we did not—repeat, did not—trade weapons or anything else for hostages, nor will we."

Arminius, also known as Armin or Hermann, was a chieftain of the Germanic Cherusci who defeated a Roman army in the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest.

One of his many faces.

It is the most common tactic of the.weak.and desperate when they fail.at attacking.the message they then go after the messangers.

The.bill passed with bipartisan support in both.houses was signed by the president upheld by the supreme court survived 88 attempts of repeal and gained 10 points in support during the 24 billion dollar tea party extremist temper tantrum.

Next step start killing the messengers.

No interest in jobs or economic.recovery.

As I said....a sign of the weak and desperate ..

Bless their hearts.

I was wrong on the bipartison vote. I stand behind the rest.

Further the fanatical tea party continues to talk.about how more than half the people.oppose obama care but omit admitting.that 38% of them oppose it because it doesn't go far enough.

When the numbers are more honestly examined then suddenly 58% of the nation either supports obamacare or thinks it should.go farther.

And yet the cruxt of my.position remains.the same. The law has passed every test of democracy and stood. The repeated failed.attacks has hurt america deeply and.those failed tea partier extremests, instead if accepting defeat as ladies and gentlemen, are now resorting to weak minded and.immature tactics such as attacking the messengers.

I often have respected people who disagree with me. John mccain and bob dole cime to mind. But the day of the lady and gentleman politician is dead and we are left with the power in the hands of fanatics who live in a bubble and who think their job is to destroy the opposition instead of come.together to serve the nation.

For that, they have failed america and I can not respect them. Not for their opinions but for the damage they inflict due to their fanaticism.

It passed both houses. It was signed by the president. It survived 88 repeal attempts and a 24 billion dollar shut down.

I get it. You don't like it.

You lost. You lost badly.

I don't expect you to change your mind. I do expect you to be smart enough to know when you lost and to quit wasting our time and money and american progress.and.quit beating the dead horse

I consider it absurd and shameful.and stupid.to keep going and making our nation pay such a steep price for what at this point is nothing more than a disrespectful adolescent tempure tantrum.
