To the Editor:

I am sick to death of those Republicans who are prepared to go to almost any length to scuttle the Affordable Health Care Act.  Prior to its passage, the United States was the only industrialized nation in the world without some form of universal health care coverage yet Americans pay more and sometimes receive less care than the citizens of other countries.

The Affordable Health Care Act isn’t perfect, mainly due to administration efforts to accommodate divergent views, like dropping the single payer provision.  If Republicans really want to serve the best interest of the people, they should stop trying to kill the Affordable Care Act and help fix it, concentrating on ways to bring costs and coverage more in line with that of other countries.
