Health care law isn’t perfect, but it is a good start

Some Republicans want to repeal the health care law. I hope they will not succeed.

This law is not all that I had hoped for — mainly it does not contain provisions for a single-payer plan. Although changes need to be made to the law, let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water.

Ever since Harry Truman, several presidents, including some Republicans, have tried in vain to pass some kind of health care bill. This legislation, even with its flaws, is a foot in the door and I applaud its passage. After this past disgusting campaign, it would be really encouraging to finally see both parties work together for the good of the country.

One can only hope!
