All Americans now have health care! Oh what a day!

To The Daily Sun,

The following is my take on the song "Oh What a Night" by the Four Seasons back in 1963. It goes like this:

 

Oh, what a day.

Late in June in 2015

What a very special time for you and me

As I remember, what a day

Oh, what a day.

The Supreme Court has ruled again

And nothing was ever going to be the same

Oh what a court, what a day

 

Oh, what a great feeling when they gave their approval

As I remember it sounds so right.

All Americans now have healthcare

Oh what a day

Oh, what a day

 

Why'd it take so long to see the light?

Seemed so wrong, but now it seems so right

What a President, what a day

Oh, I feel such a rush for everybody like a rolling thunder taking care of my body forever

Let's remember what a day.

 

Thank you President Obama and the justices of the Supreme Court of the United States.

We need cooperation during state budget negotiations

To The Daily Sun,

A thank-you to state Sen. Andrew Hosmer and state Rep. Cindy Rosenwald.

I read your column published in The Laconia Daily Sun. The two of you have taken the time to spell out step by step what the House and Senate Republicans are proposing in their budget. Are they being less than truthful with the citizens of New Hampshire "about what their budget actually funds"? The GOP budget includes "unpaid-for tax giveaways for big corporations that will blow a $90 million hole in future budgets." Say what?

We have to ask the New Hampshire GOP to stop running attack ads on TV. That ploy does not work. We do respectfully request that Gov. Hassan and the entire legislative body get together to work out a viable budget. Half truths and misleading statements on the part of those in the GOP are not what we should be hearing. We need straightforward answers. We need cooperation during negotiations. We ask that these talks take place in good faith, not continuous partisan bickering.
