Letter to the Editor

Setting the record state

To the editor,

Regarding Ms. Adcock’s October 10 letter to the editor, I want to address two of the many issues with which I disagree.

First, in June of 2017 Senator Kamala Harris joined the unanimous vote for a resolution marking the 50th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem.  Included In this resolution was the moving of the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.  Joe Biden held no office during this time.  However, Joe Biden did vote for the measure in 1995 when he was a Delaware Senator, and he has stated that if elected president he would keep the embassy in Jerusalem.

Next, pre-existing conditions are an integral part of the ACA, and the GOP has tried some 70 plus times to strike it down.  On November 10, an Affordable Care Act lawsuit will be heard before the U.S. Supreme Court, and the Republicans are hoping that the ACA will be ruled unconstitutional, thereby leaving millions without health care.  (Wonder why the rush to confirm Amy Coney Barrett?).

ApproxImately every two weeks or so, for the tenure of his presidency and throughout his campaign, Donald Trump has promised he would be unveiling a new and better plan (America Care?).  “Coming very soon...”  Over five years of promises for improved health care!  Here’s hoping that emergency medical issues don’t have to wait for the “coming soon” event to actually arrive.
