Vail Daily letter: Now what, Republicans?

Now that the Supreme Court has ruled “Obamacare” constitutional, Republicans need to decide what to do. Here are some questions they might want to answer. Will you continue to obsess over repealing Obamacare or will you focus on working with Democrats to pass legislation to create jobs? Will you force the 3.1 million young people who have health coverage as a result of Obamacare off of their parents’ insurance? Will you tell cancer patients and others with pre-existing conditions that they are on their own.

Will you throw seniors back into the Medicare prescription drug donut hole, raising their prescription drugs costs by billions of dollars each year? Will you let insurance companies go back to spending less than 80 percent of premiums on actual medical care instead of overheard, advertising and profits?

Since you are now saying the Obamacare individual mandate makes President Obama a tax raiser, doesn’t that mean Mitt Romney raised taxes on Massachusetts residents when he signed the Romneycare mandate into law?
