Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

My Email Comment To Sen. Portman On Today's GOP Health Bill

Another email to Robbie.  Contact him at 

Hi Rob.  It's me once again, your 62-year-old constituent with Stage 4 cancer being kept alive by Obamacare.

The BCRA Version 2 released today is still cruel and repugnant.  It's still a huge tax cut for Big Pharma and Big Insurance.  It still guts Medicaid, taxes older Americans, doesn’t cover essential health benefits like maternity care, will cause out-of-pocket costs to skyrocket, defunds Planned Parenthood, and contains a perverted concept of “choice” -- quarantining sick people into high risk pools while further stripping away coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.

It adds more money for opioid treatment.  Nice, but don't let yourself be bought for one small benefit in an ocean of detriment.  Don't be a sell-out!

Vote NO!
