            Let’s fix the fixable part of Obamacare

Or maybe, the main consideration is getting re-elected or elected to a higher office. We would like to see our representatives, at all levels, just do their job — which is to represent their constituents as they said they’d do when we elected them. (February 16, 2015, Page 4)
