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.
It's amusing to read the denunciations of all things Progressive and Liberal in this fine publication. Printed with progressive public power and delivered on Chelan County roads subsidized by taxpayers in the urban areas.

A Wish For The Three Fingers
All of us who love Lake Chelan, and want to preserve ample public access to the lake, stand at the brink of great opportunity or terrible loss, only a few short weeks exist before a decision may be thrust upon us.

War with Russia
Vladimir Putin has been modernizing and upgrading Russia's nuclear strike forces with the goal to wage a first strike and win a nuclear war with the United States. Putin recently called home to Russia all Russians living or working outside of Russia. He has built nuclear bomb shelters for his people. Putin only respects strength and he is extremely upset at the United States due to our opposing him in Syria. He despises, disrespects and does not trust Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and president Obama. Is he preparing his coveted first strike on America? In the meantime Obama has gutted our military and severely reduced our nuclear deterrent. The three stooges ( Hillary, Kerry & Obama ) have been trying to involve us in Syrias' civil war for a long time, even though it will probably involve us in a shooting war with the Russians. Our military is in no condition to fight a war with anyone, especially the Russians. We have zero national interest in getting involved in Syrias' civil war where the Russians have already taken over. Syria is a tar baby and we should stay as far away from it as possible.
