I read the recent letter to the editor entitled “Fighting ACA a bad proposition for Republicans” (Tribune, Oct. 25, evtnow.com/607). While I do not agree with the partisan nature of that letter, it highlighted that there are some good things in the ACA that should not be thrown away. Some aspects in particular will positively affect cancer survivors. For example, the protection of patients with pre-existing conditions, as well as the elimination of annual and lifetime limits will provide patients with access to the care they need as well as reduce the number of medical bankruptcies. Too often, patients are faced with daunting financial challenges on top of those related to their treatment and care. However, one issue that is not addressed in ACA is the unequal treatment of oral versus infusion cancer drugs by insurers. There is an urgent need for additional legislation to resolve this problem.
Won or done?
Congressional Republicans announced over the weekend that they intend to target and remove the ACA, which they derisively call Obamacare. Has no Republican strategist pointed out to this awful party that it has put itself in a ‘lose-lose big’ dilemma? They lost trying to destroy the ACA, and Americans are poised with daggers awaiting the 2014 elections. However, the ‘lose big’ part of the equation would occur if they actually succeeded in destroying the ACA. How do they plan to replace tens of millions of voters who find that our sick health care system has been returned to the bad old days before President Obama offered them a breath of hope and fresh air? It’s a t-publican elevator with only one button: DOWN.

I applaud the headline over Tom Patterson’s guest commentary, “U.S. involvement in Syrian conflict a lose-lose proposition” (June 30, 2013), that protests yet another blundering intervention in the Middle East but who in their right mind does support this aggression? Then I remembered U.S. Sen. John McCain’s May 2013 trip to that war-torn land to meet with rebels and his promise of American support for their cause. Also Sen. Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, has been begging for U.S. military action for the past year. And please, do not forget the French, who seem eager for the U.S. taxpayer to fund another war.
