Herrera Beutler Doesn't Have a Clue about the Affordable Care Act

While confirming that she will continue to work for the act's repeal (The GOP has voted some 40 times to repeal it.), she says she sees the need for some alternative program. Yet she provides no details as to what a new program looks like.

Meanwhile, she has become aware of an absence of a coordinating authority for "medically complex" children like her daughter who has needed specialized, multidisciplinary care that crosses state boundaries. She supports a bipartisan bill in Congress to set up such a system.

The irony - and the illogicality - is that she is looking to the Federal Government to provide the framework for such a system to function. In many, many areas that is just what the Affordable Care Act does - provides much needed health care to a vast majority of the American population in a relatively consistent and affordable manner.

As her opponent in the upcoming Congressional election, Bob Dingethal, explained in the article, the Affordable Care Act is doing what it is supposed to be doing - providing portable health care nationally and allowing people the freedom to move about and pursue their dreams rather than be tied to a job because it provides health insurance.

Why not add a provision to the Affordable Care Act to provide the "medically complex" care Rep. Herrera Beutler acknowledges is needed?
