Open letter to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY)...

Dear Chuck,

The issue is health care for people who can't afford it, not politics. Health care. You are a politician and always will be. Politics is the prism through which you view the world, a prism that blinds you to what real people are dealing with, the real people about whom you claim to care, but who are one illness away from bankruptcy. 

The ACA is helping people. If it's broken, fix it. If it's imperfect, work to make it less so. If you have a better idea, suggest it. But to say it was the "wrong problem" is simply to admit we have lots of problems, and nothing more. 

Do your fucking job and help solve these problems one at a time. But as you do your job, do your best not to be a dick, Chuck.
