Dr. Michael Burgess, a former Highland Village obstetrician now living in Lewisville, has been in Congress almost a decade and is one of its most knowledgeable members on the vital issue of healthcare.He just doesn't draw much attention. In these days of political extremism, his brand of bore-down-to-the-basics, fix-the-problem practicality misses the mark for sound-bite, blame-game airtime.So when he, a Republican, talks about positive results achieved under the impetus of the Affordable Care Act -- insurance companies now see allowing kids to stay on their parents' health insurance until age 26 as a good marketing tool, pharmaceutical companies agreed to discounts and other steps to close the "doughnut hole" Medicare drug coverage gap, and state risk pools can cover people with pre-existing conditions -- he doesn't get as much attention as those who chant "repeal Obamacare."Burgess does see other big problems in the healthcare act that must be fixed. For example, he says public hospitals like the JPS Health Network still bear steep costs as "safety net" facilities. And the cost of the legislation runs afoul of budget control imperatives.GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan's plan for restructuring Medicare is sound, Burgess says.Burgess is a man out for results more than talk.Also running are Democrat David Sanchez and Libertarian Mark Boler.The Star-Telegram Editorial Board recommends Michael Burgess for U.S. House District 26.
