Letter to the Editor: Affordable Care Act Raises Concerns

Below is a essay by Middletown Republican Town Committee chair, resident, and veteran Ken McClellan. All opinions expressed are that of the author and not necessarily that of the Insider staff. 
I’ve seen reports that there is a move afoot in congress to have elected officials exempted from the provisions of the Affordable Care Act.

If this is true, I ask that my elected officials: Chris Murphy, Rosa DeLauro and Richard Blumenthal, oppose any such exemption.   Congress should be subject to the laws it sees fit to enact.   If a law would hinder or inconvenience a senator or representative, how can it be good for the country?

There should be no special provisions or plans for congresspersons to be eligible for health insurance or health care not available to us, the citizens.

I urge all of you to write to your national elected officials and ask them to abide by the laws that they enact.
