Saluting Sen. Collins for health care stand

Dear Editor:

I was listening to a news report this morning about the continuing efforts of the Republican Party to substantially gut the Affordable Care Act and of Sen. Susan Collins’ resolute opposition to these efforts. As a lifelong independent voter, I don’t always agree with the Senator’s positions on issues, but it is rare when I think she is not putting the needs of our state ahead of party politics. I can only imagine the pressure she is getting from members of her party and you can bet some of that pressure is unpleasant at best.

I want the Senator to know that there are many of us who admire her integrity and independence and appreciate the fact that she is standing her ground on the Affordable Care Act repeal, which I believe would devastate health care in Maine, particularly in our rural areas. Thank you, Senator.

Mark Green
