Healthcare debate

Apart from the debate about gun control, we, as Americans, should be saddened, and angered, to hear of another day with another shooting. Republican or Democrat — we are all human beings.

That said, collectively, we should hope that all the victims receive the best medical care and rehabilitation possible.

Good to know that one of them, Rep. Steve Scalise, has such a wonderful and comprehensive government health insurance plan to facilitate this.

Perhaps with this in mind, he will revisit the support he gave, and the vote he cast, on the House bill repealing and replacing Obamacare.

The plan he voted for would not give other Americans the opportunity or ability to afford the care he is going to receive. His recovery will be long — I wish him Godspeed.
