The Republicans continue to trumpet their plans to kill the Affordable Care Act. However, they continue to fail to outline how millions of those covered will get health care. It’s time to put up or shut up.
Obamacare is about immorally taking money meant for infrastructure and national defense and misdirecting it into the misguided idea that the government should make individuals’ lives easier – which is not its role. That Republicans don’t offer a different but still misguided scheme is a sign of their integrity.
Obamacare has become big business for an elite network of Washington Democrat lobbyists and consultants who helped shape the law from the inside.
I doubt that Obama learned anything from the election, since other Democrats lost but he didn’t lose his job.
Greg Orman’s concession speech was far classier and more genuine than Pat Roberts’ speech. It was a tired, old professional politicians’ acceptance speech, which uses up lots of words but doesn’t say much. I hope Orman runs again and wins.
Words I never thought I would utter in the same sentence – Pat Roberts and dirty politics.
I voted for Roberts even though I did not want to. The only reason I did was because Orman is pro-choice. Sad day for America when a career politician with such an unremarkable record is re-elected.
I hope state law will now be changed to prevent the kind of backdoor scheme that Orman and the Democrat Party tried to pull in this election.
Regarding the elections: Shakespeare said it best, “Much ado about nothing.”
I have lived in Wichita all my life, and I should have a say about changing the name of our airport. Eisenhower was a great president, but we don’t need his name on our airport. Leave it as Wichita Mid-Continent Airport.
If you want to see wasted tax dollars, drive Andover Road south of Harry.
One reader commented on how out of touch newspaper editors are with their readership. The job of newspapers, or any news media, is to present the facts that can shape the essential discussions of our time. Journalists are the true servants of democracy.
Leonard Pitts’ column on news trustworthiness was laughable (Nov. 3 Opinion). This is the guy who links racism to everything: Conservatives are racist. Racist cops profile black drivers. Let’s rate newspaper columnists on trustworthiness and see how he ranks.
