At Congressman Matt Salmon’s Town Hall meeting in Gilbert, I asked him why is he and the rest of his colleagues keep trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care)? It has been tried 37 times now to the tune of $55 million of tax payer dollars! He is wasting time and our money using scare tactics to his constituents that simply are not true. His response was he is going to continue to try to repeal Obamacare. No matter what it takes!! That plainly tells me he does not care about spending taxpayer dollars on something that will not pass and using false pretenses, but yet he is the first one to complain about government waste and spending.
Mr. Salmon better do his homework. The Affordable Care Act has already been proven in a few states that premiums in most cases are actually going to go down once the insurance pools are all in place. People will be paying according to their income, not according to the illness. That’s what makes it affordable! After 37 times of trying to repeal it and 55 Million of our tax dollars going to waste, it’s time for Congress to realize our new health care system is going to work for all of us.
