To the editor:
I want to express my appreciation to Lynn Jenkins and her colleagues in the U.S. House of Representatives for their steadfast efforts to keep health care from the Undeserving (i.e., the poor). They just voted again — for the 24th, 25th time; I’ve lost count — to abolish the Affordable Care Act. They are like Sisyphus pushing the rock or a dung beetle pushing ... well, never mind. They seem to be acting in good conscience from a philosophy of Social Darwinism: Them that have earned it deserve it; them that didn’t don’t.
And our Republican governor certainly has done his part by refusing to allow expansion of Medicaid to needy but obviously Undeserving (i.e., poor) citizens of Kansas.
Actually, the central domestic issue facing our great nation is the unfair distribution of the wealth in our great nation. There still is too much of it in the hands of the Undeserving (i.e., the poor) who don’t know much about money anyway. Republicans in Congress and in Topeka are doing their best to retain as much wealth as possible for the Truly Deserving (i.e., the rich). Please remember our congressional representatives and our governor at election time.
