ACA no failure
In his Dec. 14 editorial, the Echo publisher takes on Obamacare, formally the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or, as Bill Forhan calls it, the "unaffordable care act." The editorial consists of a long list of all that he claims is wrong with the six-year-old program designed to make health care more available and affordable to Americans. Citing a study by the Washington Policy Center, Forhan pronounces the ACA a "clear policy failure" and "simply a power grab by progressives."

Responding to your 10/19 endorsement of Donald Trump
Your detailed expose' of the vital issues we face certainly resonates. Maybe if you'd been on the Trump team you could have convinced him to stay with these issues. The trouble, as we now all realize, is the Donald made it not about the issues, but himself. And he got his wish. Independents and principled Republicans took a horrified look at him and decided they are not that desperate for change.

Republicans won't repeal ACA
'Politicians should give the voters what they demand. And they should give it to them good and hard.' This chestnut from the Bard of Baltimore (H.L. Mencken) may well be predictive starting Jan. 21.

The Washington Policy Center has just released a study on the status of the unaffordable care act or Obamacare. Here are the key findings:
• The Affordable Care Act (ACA), also called Obamacare, became law six years ago and is a clear policy failure according to the goals set by its supporters.

Don't allow yourself to be distracted
This is undoubtedly the most difficult but most significant Presidential election in the last 30 years. It is not easy because Americans are deeply divided and often driven to make this decision based on questionable gut wrenching emotional issues that have little to do with the real issues facing our country.
Let's face it. We are all flawed human beings. We have all said things and done things that are disgraceful. But what we said and what did 20 or 30 years ago is not necessarily a true reflection of who we are today.
That said, it will come as no surprise to my regular readers that I am endorsing Donald Trump in this year's election.
