Letter: Dale Everett, Ashburn

Editor: Regarding last week’s letter by Randy Ihara, he writes that “I am writing to express my outrage at the joyous celebration by the House of Republicans and the President of the United States!” Apparently, he did not see the juvenile reaction of the Democrats when this bill passed the House. They sang out nay, nay, hey, hey, kiss him goodbye on the floor of the House.

Do you remember any such thing occurring by the Republicans when the Democrats passed Obamacare without a single Republican vote? Of course not; they are too professional and aware of the decorum expected on the House floor to ever resort to such infantile antics. Then Mr. Ihara goes on to castigate the ACHA with numerous derogatory comments about the bill. This even though the bill is not more than a guide to what is likely to come out in the final version. First, the bill must go to the Senate, be reworked there and then sent to conference to reconcile the two versions after which it will need to be approved again by both the House and the Senate. In other words, I don’t know what the final bill will look like and neither does Mr. Ihara.

What I do know is that my wife’s insurance, under Obammacare, has shot up from $400 per month to more than $1,100 with a $8,000 deductible; in other words, she must expend approximately $21,000 per annum before she really has any insurance. So much for affordability.

The Democratic agenda is to do everything in their power to obstruct and delay president’s agenda without regard to what impact it has on the country. They won’t succeed.

Country singer Merle Haggard wrote and sang the following words, “When a president goes through the White House door and does what he says he’ll do, we’ll all be a drinking that free bubble up and eating that rainbow stew.” Well, Mr. Ihara that’s exactly what President Trump is doing; he is delivering for his supporters exactly what they voted for.

Just so you’ll know I’m enjoying a glass of free bubble up and eating that rainbow stew.

Dale Everett, Ashburn
