From the Charleston Gazette-Mail: Cecil Roberts: Graham-Cassidy a bad song that gets worse every time we hear it (Gazette)

President Trump was right when he said health care is complicated. What is not complicated, however, is what working people want from our health care system. We want to be able to get the care our families need — when we need it — at a price that does not leave us bankrupt.

Unfortunately, some politicians in Washington either do not get this or do not want to get it. Instead, they keep coming back with new arrangements of the same out of tune health care song.

After a spring and summer in which Congress tried to ram through legislation that would have taken health care away from more than 20 million people, some in the U.S. Senate are pushing a proposal that contains many of the same devastating provisions that would leave working people in West Virginia poorer and sicker.
