The Sun's recent coverage of the House Republicans' campaign against Obamacare ("House GOP: Defund health law or shutter government," Sept. 19) offers a good example of Congressional Republican hypocrisy. In the article, Rep. Marlin Stutzman of Indiana is quoted as saying, "We're doing what the American people are asking us to do." Well, Mr. Stutzman, if Republicans are so devoted to doing what the American people want, where were you when over 80 percent of the American people wanted stricter gun control laws?
By the way, just what alternative do you and your conservative cohorts suggest as a replacement to the Affordable Care Act? No one has heard of any lately. Do you think that there is not a health care crisis in this country? The only conclusion an objective observer can come to is that Republicans want this country to go back to the old system where insurance companies can raise rates at will and refuse care to those who have a pre-existing condition.
Is he so owned by those same insurance companies he will do anything (including close down the government) to assure those companies their profits?
