While I am happy for Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) and his family that he survived his terrible injuries and is on the road to recovery [“Scalise returns to Capitol Hill,” front page, Sept. 29], I was dismayed that he doesn’t seem to credit the role played by the quality of the health insurance he enjoys as a member of Congress.
He has described in vivid detail the many operations and grueling rehab he has undergone, without any acknowledgment of the cost and the fact that his family will not be bankrupted paying for it.
In addition to the photograph of his triumphant and emotional return, The Post should have run a photo of him standing next to President Trump in the Rose Garden, celebrating the House’s repeal of the Affordable Care Act. His bear-hugging colleague, Bruce Poliquin (R), is my congressman, a multimillionaire who also supported repeal but didn’t tell his constituents how he would vote.
