Letter to the editor: The Obamacare monster

Friday, October 11, 2013 - 12:01 am

The first days of Obamacare are upon us. The vast majority of Americans now or will soon recognize the profusion of problems with this 20,000+ page monstrosity. The administration is begging young people to jump on the bandwagon. Surprise, Mr. President, your words and actions have turned off the very groups that put you in office for a second term. You have even managed to alienate union supporters.

I predict that within the next year the American people will have suffered so horribly from Obamacare’s drastic increase in insurance costs, invasion of privacy, contradictory rules, excessive taxes, unjustified fines, loss of chosen doctors and health providers, and life-ending decisions by the death panel, they will rise up and demand Congress stop our suffering.

Or to stop the misery for American citizens, Congress will wisely override Obama’s illegal Obamacare exemptions for numerous groups. Let them utilize the outstanding benefits (Obama’s words) of his “affordable” health care law, just like we in middle and lower classes are being forced to do.
