Letter: Kansas shouldn't accept grant money through health care reform act

Finally, Sam Brownback is doing something sensible and thinking (hopefully) about what the people of Kansas need! The whole Republican idea of switching Medicare (and eventually Medicaid) into a voucher program is to pay back the private insurance industry for the millions of dollars it's floated to the Republican candidates and newly minted congress men/women. I, too, am glad that President Obama was able to get "something" pushed through after all these years of people becoming uninsured or underinsured. If it's unconstitutional to make people responsible for purchasing a health insurance policy then it's unconstituional to make it mandatory for people to have to buy car insurance and homeowner's insurance. Mr. Fry, you must have never been in a situation where you either lost your health insurance or was unable to afford it...otherwise you would be much more empathetic to those millions of people in our state and around the country who have none.
