Noem and Health Care

Kristi's latest comments on KELO-TV  are amusing.  I don't fault her for taking advantage of the government sponsored health plan. Everyone who is employed by a company offering health care coverage usually takes advantage of these plans. How nice for her that she is now a federal employee and enjoys the opportunities of affordable health care when there are millions of "everyday people" who can't afford heath care or wouldn't be able to get health care coverage without this health care bill.

However, she doesn't seem to get the hypocrisy of her stand on repealing the health care law for all Americans. First of all the House voting to repeal the health care bill was meaningless and pure grandstanding. She said her vote was to fulfill a campaign promise to SD voters. A meaningless campaign promise. Thank you, Kristi, for the grand and meaningless gesture.

Now that the Republicans took care of their meaningless attempt to repeal the health care law, they are finally ready to get down to the real business of changing the law.  "People with pre-existing conditions, finding solutions to get them covered with health insurance. Allowing children to stay on their parents' policies until they're of age 26. Those will all be solutions that you'll see Republicans bringing forward," Noem said.  News flash, Kristi.  Those provisions are in the health care law that you were so intent on repealing. Those solutions are done, no thanks to you.
