They just don't get it - they refuse to get it

I called the office of our misrepresentative last week, got this in reply a couple of days ago:

Mr. JR

Dear Mr. R
Thank you for contacting me to express your views regarding the Affordable Care Act, more commonly known as Obamacare. I appreciate hearing from you on this issue.
On January 13, 2017, the House of Representatives took the first step to dismantle Obamacare by passing a budget for fiscal year 2017. This budget gives Congress the flexibility to replace the law with a system that works for all Americans. It has been nearly six years since Obamacare was enacted into law, and in that time, it has been defined by broken promises and unworkable implementation. It has forced Americans to pay more for their healthcare coverage, led some to lose their doctors, and others to lose the insurance plans they designed for their families.
The solution must uphold patient-centered solutions, continue the few positives in Obamacare, such as ensuring access to care regardless s of pre-existing conditions and allowing individuals under the age of 26 to be covered on families’ plans; but also reform medical liability, increase competition, and protect religious convictions of consumers.
Americans deserve better than the false promises of Washington politicians. I voted in favor of the budget as a needed step to strengthen our healthcare system and empower individuals to make decisions without being burdened by government mandates.
While we may disagree on this issue, I appreciate hearing from you. The only way to ensure our great republic continues to thrive is for citizens like you to exercise your First Amendment right, and voice your opinion. I am truly honored to be fortunate enough to represent the people in the 2nd Congressional District.
Again, thank you for taking to the time to contact me. I appreciate having the benefit of your views.

This is so narrow-minded and contradictory!

Pearce's press release of Jan 20:
“The inauguration of President Trump this morning is the ultimate example of our Democracy in action,” said Pearce. “Chief Justice Roberts swearing in President Trump, as he did for President Obama, shows the strength of our nation. After a brutal election season and partisanship, the nation came together to peacefully transfer power to the people’s chosen successor.
“Today should be an example for the months and years to come. Now more than ever, we need to set aside our differences and work together to improve the lives of the New Mexican people. Finding what unites us, improving access to affordable and safe housing, creating stable and good paying jobs, and expanding personal opportunity for prosperity. I look forward to working with my colleagues in New Mexico, the House, and President Trump to move our nation forward and better it for generations to come.”


OK southern New Mexicans in the 2nd district — who’s going to run against this guy in 2018?
