Grandstanding for constituents

Your recent story about U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, R-11 of Hazleton, trying to get a law passed pertaining to volunteer firefighter health insurance does not represent all of the facts as I understand them. The Affordable Care Act has, I believe, put in place regulations that do exactly what Mr. Barletta wants. He says he wants his law passed, too. But what he wants to have done apparently is already being done, and he just won’t take yes for an answer. His law is not needed, and this story seems to be just grandstanding for his constituents.
