Hard to understand denying people health care


Follow The Republic:


I was alarmed at the wording of a recent article about the limit on hours of county office (workers).

The difficulty was blamed on “changes wrought by the new health care law.” Really? WROUGHT?

This positions the new law as something to be dreaded. And for the majority of Americans, it is not.

It also makes the county offices look cheap and gleeful at the opportunity of denying health care to employees. Not to mention incapable of staffing and organizing their office.

I will never understand why providing health care to fellow humans is such a loathsome prospect to some people.

You would think they would want to help each other.

God forbid.

This scenario, particularly as reported, reminds me of the debacle surrounding the owner of Papa John’s Pizza.

He, too, balked when told he would now have to provide health insurance for his workers and actually cried (from the comfort of his grotesque mansion) that he would have to raise the price of his pizzas to compensate.

We saw how that played out; he finally was shamed into issuing an apology.

To use an overstated phrase, the people fighting so hard to deny health care to working citizens are on the wrong side of history.

Don't settle for a preview.
