Reader sees great value in Affordable Health Act

Reader sees great value in Affordable Health Act
I read Trevor Slette's "Quick Hit" column in the Feb. 26 Citizen, and felt a bit sorry him (and disgusted with the article at the same time).
How sad that he actually had to pay 18 percent more in premium costs versus what he was paying pre-Obama Care! Eighteen percent more?
Slette apparently chose to ignore what the President was trying to do - changing the lives and improving the lives of thousands and thousands of our country's poor and suffering people.
Since the Supreme Court's united decision, I have read the following news items: The Koch Brothers have spent $1.2 billion worth of outside money to help elect Ted Craig.
The guilty politicians are ignoring the top priorities of American people - such as strengthening Social Security, insuring that corporations and the wealthy pay their fair share and also reining in gun violence. Instead, they are ramming through policies which line the pockets of the rich, at the expense of the middle class.
A New York Times reporter recently reported that the Koch Brothers actually paid to "shut down" the government and hold the economy hostage! Are you a "Koch Brothers" admirer Mr. Slette?
