These days in Washington, D.C., we hear about the “Art of the Deal” and the “Art of Resistance”.


Isn’t it about time for the “Art of Compromise”? As the Affordable Care Act (ACA) continues to implode, our elected leaders, on both sides of the aisle, seem to care more about their own power and positions than about helping the people that they represent.


Folks on Medicaid/Medi-Cal are scared of losing their health benefits while health insurance benefits are increasingly unaffordable for the middle class. The middle class cannot continue to afford to pay their insurance premiums and can’t meet their deductibles, but do not qualify for financial assistance due to their income levels being “too high”. REALLY? Compromise to do the right thing for millions of Americans, who spoke up via their votes last year, should be our representatives’ priority. Compromise should be about getting results that are best for the people, not for the political class. What say you?
