Indiana health care in need of reform
Our broken health care system needs the reform provided by the Affordable Care Act known as Obamacare.
Billions of dollars in fraudulent charges by health care providers have been taken back by Medicare — stolen dollars that belong to the taxpayers.
The Affordable Care Act will make $10.5 billion available to support Indiana’s health care system and the 400,000 uninsured Hoosiers. A refusal by Gov. Pence to accept these funds would be political in nature and a total disregard for suffering Hoosiers.
Our governor needs to dispel any appearance of ties with the tea party in favor of doing his job — representing Hoosiers.
Our governor needs to support expanding health care to cover all Hoosiers; back off his tax cuts that are mostly for the wealthy; support our education system; fix our infrastructure, roads and rail crossings; and move forward, not back to the Bush era, when everything was done for the wealthy and nothing was done for the rest of us.
They play and we pay. No more. Enough is enough.
Huston Lane in city, so it needs plowed
I am a newly annexed resident on the north end of Kokomo (North Webster Street and Huston Lane). If I must now pay city taxes, why can’t I get city plowing services?
The last two snows, I have had to call repeatedly to the Street Department and the mayor’s office to get Huston Lane plowed, with no results!
Admittedly, there are only three or four residents along this road, but this is our only access and egress to Webster and Washington streets.
This is now a city street, thanks to annexation! Mayor, you have to accept responsibility if you want the revenue!
