Letter: U.S. Rep. Brooks fails to lead



U.S. Rep. Susan Brooks voted for the Upton Bill which would have allowed insurance companies to keep offering (non-Obamacare) plans. As a health insurance broker I knew that it would be impossible to recreate eliminated plans overnight just to delay massive cancellations in a year. Recently the Indiana Insurance Commissioner agreed and said Indiana would not allow the recreation of those plans. In addition, instead of fighting to permanently keep our plans like President Barack Obama promised, Republicans are now fighting for just a 1-year extension. This extension would have led to massive cancellations at the end of 2014 conveniently for the Democrats after the 2014 elections.  Republicans need to stop passing fake fixes to appear as if they are working on behalf of their constituents. U.S. Rep. Brooks’ vote was nothing more than cover and an attempt to appear to be fighting hard against Obamacare. False fixes and token legislation meant to pander achieve nothing. Washington games need to be replaced with leadership.
