Editorial was ‘a bunch of bull’ | Letter
(In response to the Oct. 11 editorial: “It’s time to end the government shutdown.”)
What a bunch of bull! Obamacare is not about health care. It’s about control. It’s the brass ring that Marxists in America have pursued for decades. The Congressional Budget Office even admits now that AFTER Obamacare is fully implemented, nearly 30 million Americans will STILL be without insurance. So why do it? Why $1 trillion in new taxes and $2.7 trillion in new deficits over a decade? Why 20,000 pages of new regulations and the federal government involved in decisions that should be left to doctors and their patients?
Obamacare is about making 100 percent of Americans slaves to federal government bureaucrats. Yes, death panels that will decide what doctor you can have, what treatment you can have, what level of care you will be allowed to be insured for and how long you’ll have to wait to get it.
Personally, I’m sick and tired of Obamacare supporters couching their support in the broader need to provide care to the millions of uninsured. There are a lot of ways to do it that don’t result in the attacks on liberty, freedom and choice that Obamacare does, BY DESIGN.
Nancy Pelosi said they had to pass Obamacare to find out what was in it. Well, after three years we’ve learned it is so fatally flawed that Obama has unconstitutionally delayed or canceled parts that don’t work. We’re seeing the devastating impacts on employment as full-time employees are seeing their hours dropped to 29 hours a week, and layoffs are coming so businesses can avoid the mandates this government is placing on the private sector.
If Democrats had wanted to solve the problem of the uninsured they should have talked to Republicans instead of using every trick and cheat they could to adopt Obamacare without a single Republican vote. The ONLY bipartisan vote was AGAINST Obamacare with 34 Democrats joining the Republicans in opposition to it.
Dr. Ben Carson has said, “Obamacare is the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery.” He is right. Democrats have chained every single American to the federal government for perhaps the most important issue of their life. Yes, Obamacare will eventually KILL, as federal government bureaucrats make life and death decisions Democrats unilaterally gave government over the American people.
Support for this “Obamanation” is an assault on the founding principles of this nation. Without politics, it wouldn’t exist and we’d all be far more free than we are as a result of it.
