Republican Senator Mitch McConnell deigns to attend President Obama's bipartisan health care meeting ("New Obama health plan could block rate hikes," Feb. 20) while claiming Democrats are "arrogant in their refusal to throw out current legislation and start from scratch." In other words Republicans would agree to participate "in good faith" by writing their own version to replace the one already approved by the legislature. What a travesty!
This nation has endured eight years under a Republican administration when obviously necessary reforms were simply non-existent, except for the much-vaunted Medicare prescription drug plan which seniors have found contains a fatal flaw known as the "doughnut hole," which negates much of its so-called benefits.
