Once again, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to move the country backward by repealing “Obamacare”, even after the Supreme Court upheld it. Our representative Chris Gibson was among the reactionaries voting to undo health care reform, despite the fact that the people he ostensibly represents have some of the poorest health care outcomes in the state. Gibson has been cheered on by a band of hill country Greene County zealots who seem oblivious to their own best interests.
The Blue team obviously has a lot of work to do. Locally, it’s important to counter the hysterical rants these dimwits regularly submit to the local press. Try to be polite when doing so … it’s not always easy.
Nationally, we need to elect Julian Schreibman this November and send Gibson packing. That will better serve our county’s residents in many important ways, including health care. Even those residents too blinded by Tea Party slogans to recognize genuine progress when it occurs.
