Let Faso know it will hurt our residents

To The Editor:

As of this writing, it is hard to know exactly how awful the Senate’s so called health care bill is because it had been hidden from view by 13 men in Washington. But in the 24 hours since it has been released, it is clear that the driving force was to give an unprecedented tax cut to the superrich that will be paid for by taking health care away from millions of Americans and by devastating Medicaid, which provides care to tens of millions of children, disabled and elderly Americans.

The Republicans want a vote on the bill, without any hearings or opportunity to assess the damage the bill will cause before they go home for yet another vacation. If the Senate passes the bill, it will have to go back to the House before it can become law. Our Congressman, John Faso will likely vote for the bill in the House if given the opportunity. Let him know that it will hurt Delaware County residents and will harm Margaretville Hospital due to the Medicaid cuts.
