I was astonished by the recent article regarding the Affordable Care Act by Eileen Ambrose ("Oppose health care act at your own risk," April 1).
In order to educate the masses on this bill, I assume Ms. Ambrose has a law degree and has read and understood each page of the 3,000-plus page bill.
Could The Sun clarify that for its readers, before we take her recommendations?
And to Ms. Ambrose: Can you please qualify the notion that if I go out and buy a new BMW and wrap it around a pole, I can then go buy insurance on it like having a pre-existing condition covered by health insurance?
And why should someone out of college, earning wages, living on his or her own still be on their parents' insurance?
According to Ms. Ambrose, we (the folks who pay taxes, not the ones that vote) should buy into her belief that the types of health care policies, as mentioned above, will reduce the cost of health care. Further, if we add millions of illegal immigrants and other uninsured to the health care plan, it will be less expensive for all of us? I am perplexed.
The Sun should get some reporters who are not as far-flung to the left as The Sun's editorial board.
