Follow up: An Open Letter to Senator Bob Corker
I wanted to take a moment (especially in light of the message I sent yesterday) to congratulate you on doing the right thing in voting against the BCRA, and to encourage you to continue to vote against health care reform that isn’t in the best interest of Americans.
I know that there are significant flaws in the Affordable Care Act, but I also know that there are ways to fix the system that offer wider access to health care at a lower cost, that don’t harm the most vulnerable among us. Every other industrialized nation manages it, and not only does it have better overall health outcomes (e.g. life expectancy, infant mortality) for their citizens, it makes their business infrastructure more competitive, the way roads and bridges do.
I digress–we could talk at length on the economic benefits of a robust healthcare system.
The point is, I’m glad you did the right thing yesterday with respect to the BCRA. Keep it up.
