Vote for Matt Wiedenhoeft

To the Editor: Before ACA (Obamacare) was passed, it was predicted to be a big mistake.
Jul 28, 2014

 

Since its passage, this 2700 page bill has grown to 22,000 pages—a stack over 7 feet tall.  Now, it is recognized as a disaster. 

As Dr. Ben Carson points out, medical care requires only two people, a patient and a physician.       

Amanda Price voted for an Obamacare exchange, Medicaid expansion, and Common Core--all of which are more government regulation and control.  It is time to stop this. 

Vote for Matt Wiedenhoeft for 89th District Michigan State Representative.

Calvin J. Dykstra, M.D.

Spring Lake Township

I doubt that the millions of people who now have affordable health or Medicare eligibility care think the ACA is a disaster. And I'm not sure when Dr. Carson practiced last but my medical care required insurance personnel to work out the discounts and the amount left to me.
With regards to Common Core- It was started by a state governors, school officers and corporate leaders concerned with our students ability to compete internationally. Why is it an anathema to want students be held to the same standards no matter where in the US they go to school?
I think it is time to pull heads out of the sand and realize not all tax or regulation is bad. Taxes are needed to maintain roads, schools and other public works. Taxes support new initiatives like extending wifi networks. Regulation is needed to maintain safety standards and pollution control among other things. Regulations change as industry changes.
To advocate for the status quo is fine when you are doing well but offers nothing to those who may need help and does nothing to prepare for the future.

Personally I don't think there is anything wrong with our schools and students. This is America we don't need to worry about what other foreign students are doing or not doing. Bottom line is we have a nuclear Navy that can put rocket down a stove pipe 1500 miles away. Those students on those ships came from our schools. Our schools are fine. If a student chooses not to apply themselves and be a loser they can do that - this is still a free country.
