Letters: What McKeon's 'no' vote on health care means

Once again last Thursday, the Republican-controlled House voted, for the 33rd time, to repeal the Affordable Care Act, declared constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.

And ,once again, Congressman, Howard “Buck” McKeon, (R-Santa Clarita) voted with the majority.

One can only assume from his vote that he is in favor of insurance companies denying health care coverage for children with pre-existing conditions.

By his vote, he is also telling us he is against allowing children under the age of 26 from remaining on their parents health plan, and he is for senior citizens paying more out-of-pocket for their prescriptions.

His “no” vote also indicates that he is against providing preventive care with no co-pays, deductibles or coinsurance, especially for seniors on Medicare. He must also be against providing small businesses with a health insurance tax credit.

His “no” vote indicates that he is in favor of insurance companies being able to indiscriminately discontinue medical coverage for individuals who become sick.

Oh, by the way, Congressman McKeon doesn’t have to worry, he and his eligible dependents have their health care needs fully covered by the same health care plan that is available to all federal employees (with a few added perks for Congressmen).  Guess who pays for that — us, the taxpayers.
