No one can deny the need to improve American medical care. The head of the Mayo Clinic reports that were the aviation industry run like US medical care, a large airliner would crash every fourth day. But HR 3962, the Affordable Care Act, is not the solution. The US Constitution runs about 4,000 words. HR 3962 runs about 300,000 words. Many of those words refer to other statutes in an arrogantly bewildering legislative structure of subtlely interlocking commitments and rewards. Jim Himes voted for this thing. Nancy Pelosi told us, and presumably Jim, to “read it after we pass it.”
No exclusion for prior conditions and coverage of offspring through age 26 are two good features of the bill. No one’s elected me a legislator yet, but I suspect I could express those two good features in maybe 1,000 words of simple declarative sentences. That leaves 299,000 words for Nancy and Jim to explain. I’d rather not wait. For this as just one of many reasons I am most enthusiastically supporting and voting for Steve Obsitnik for the 4th Congressional District of Connecticut.
Grandson and son of WWII immigrants, Steve is an electrical engineer with a Wharton MBA who, like his father, graduated from Annapolis. He served in US Navy submarines, and succeeded in the Silicon Valley telecommunications technology business. He is a successful leader with people skills and real-world credentials supported by simple, unforgiving, but rewarding laws of physics. And he’s a university level educator. Who better to help apply the innate power of this nation to start to resolve our problems!
Enough of the unfortunate alternative! Please vote for Steve Obsitnik. If you do, there’s a bonus. In the likely event the Presidential election goes to the HR, wouldn’t you rather have Steve than the alternative casting our part of Connecticut’s vote? .
