Letter: Happy Obamacare being repealed

I saw a report on the news where they said that Iowans were so mad over Congress repealing Obamacare that they were protesting their elected officials’ offices. If you only listened to the reporter, you would have thought half of the state showed up, but when they showed the picture, it looked to be about a couple dozen people. I wasn’t surprised because everyone I talk to hates Obamacare and is happy that it’s finally being repealed — it sure took long enough.

I guess we needed President Donald Trump in the White House and Sen. Joni Ernst and Sen. Chuck Grassley in the Senate though. Costs under Obamacare are insane and we don’t have any choices in our state anymore because all the providers left. I heard Sen. Ernest say that the status quo of Obamacare isn’t viable anymore and I truly believe she is right. I’ll be glad to see it gone soon. We’ve waited long enough and enough is enough.
