In polarized country, it's hard to get something like health care done

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

When President Obama was campaigning in 2008, the top priority of the voters was health care. Then the economy crashed, and Obama got elected, and had to deal with that. Then, the Democrats were in charge, and managed to pass the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act before the Republicans regained control of the House of Representatives in 2010.
In a polarized country, it's hard to get something like health care done. Different people hate it for opposing reasons. Now 'ACA' is law, and the 'loyal opposition' can't stop demonizing 'Obamacare', and have little to offer as an alternative.
"Don't nix it! Fix it!
