To the Editor:
The irresponsible, infantile behavior of the Republicans has now proven to the world that they are utterly incapable of governing.
Otherwise reasonable legislators have allowed themselves to be dictated by a small minority extremist faction of their party with the current disastrous results – the shutdown of the federal government of the United States.
This, over the issue of Obamacare, the law of the land. We, as physicians, heartily endorse this law and welcome its implementation.
We appeal to the Republican party, and to Peter Roskam, our congressional representative, to return to their senses and start becoming part of the solution, not part of the problem.
Now is the time to work together to hone this new law into perfection and help to mold it into a well-crafted program that will help to provide affordable health care to the millions of our citizens that will benefit from it.
