Critique of Obamacare missed mark
To the editor:
I read E. Thomas McClanahan’s guest column in the Oct. 18 Gazette about Obamacare (“Obamacare a fiscal train wreck”). Since I am unfamiliar with this editorial board member from the Kansas City Star, I read some articles that were listed on a Google search.
My conclusion from this impromptu bit of research is that McClanahan is not worthy of any space in our local newspaper. His articles tend to be Republican rants about issues he does not like rather than the kind of objective reporting that I expect to find in the Gazette.
McClanahan is entitled to his loathing of President Obama, but I do not have to read about it. His arguments in the guest column boil down to his disregard for the experts who support the financial implications of Obamacare and his support for his unnamed “experts” who are on his side. It is pathetic.
