To the editor:
There’s an old saying “If it sounds to good to be true, it probably isn’t,” and this is what I think about the “Affordable Care Act.”
Elections are coming, and the Democrats up for re-election are running from it like a rabbit from a fox. Why? If it’s so good for the people, why would those who designed it, and crammed it down our throats, have to flee from it in fear of it costing them re-election? They should stand proud of their accomplishment, and run on it, and they would, if only they believed their own words praising it.
I have found it very easy to figure out what’s behind every single thing our government has done, supposedly to help people, without exception. All one has to do is look at the history of them, as to whether they were a help, or a trap,and I have found that every one of them is a trap, and the “Affordable Care Act,” is no different. Here is a little prediction of what will happen with it. In a few short years, the government will find that they don’t have enough money to cover the cost of it, so they will either raise taxes, premiums, or deductibles,or all the above. It won’t be long before hardly anyone will be able to afford it, but it’s the “law of the land.” They have put insurance companies out of business, so where is one to go for healthcare coverage? What are you going to have to give up to be able to afford to pay government for your healthcare? Are you going to give up your housing, food, car or your children?
This may sound like the thoughts of a madman, but it’s the thoughts of a mad man, there’s a big difference. I am mad because Americans have failed to examine the actions of their government, and question their every move. If they had,we would never have allowed this country to get into the horrible state it’s in today.
President Obama boasted that, “I have a pen and a phone.” Well, he missed a great opportunity to use them to help fix our healthcare problems. All that was needed was a few strokes of his pen, and a few phone calls to get these problems fixed. There was absolutely no good reason that government had to take over the entire healthcare system, when all that was needed were a few regulations on the insurance companies, and trial lawyers, but fixing it was never their intent.
