Printed in the Three Village Times Herald this week:
Thank you Rep. Lee Zeldin for voting “yes” for Trumpcare in the U.S. House of Representatives. This bill slashes insurance subsidies, makes drastic cuts to Medicaid, guts pre-existing condition protection, de-funds planned parenthood and makes insurance less comprehensive. The bill was passed without holding any hearings or giving the bi-partisan Congressional Budget Office time to do an analysis. Thank you for stripping health insurance from at least 24 million Americans. Thank you because you will be held to your unconscionable vote when voters go to the polls in 2018 and vote against Trumpcare and the Republicans who voted for it. The voters will not forget.
Terry S. Shapiro, D.M.D., East Setauket, NY 11733
