Letter: Rewrite ACA

March 28, 2014 

I am concerned that most people don't know who authored the Affordable Care Act, meaning the people appointed by the government to write this law. This law was written by the insurance companies and the drug manufactures in our great country.

To me, this appears to be about as intelligent as asking the fox to guard the hen house. Their first thought would be a law that helps them financially.

I think the medical profession would have been a better and a fairer choice to write this law. My hope is that after the November elections, we will see enough of a change in Washington, D.C., to repeal it entirely. I have no problem with another health care law being written with much forethought about the law helping people in our great nation to have adequate, and affordable health insurance.
