Letter: Stop Obamacare before it’s too late

To the editor:

Obamacare has hurt enough people! It is time to end this evil sham of a health care plan. The (Un)Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was passed by a Democratic Congress that didn’t read it. Even getting Democratic votes required lies and bribes.

Despite hundreds of Obama speeches and millions of taxpayer dollars spent on promotional propaganda, the American public continues to overwhelmingly oppose Obamacare. Americans know that Obamacare will only ruin our health care system that is the envy of the world.

But Americans could not have imagined how harmful Obamacare is. Health care premiums are skyrocketing, often more than $5,000 greater than the reduced premiums that President Obama promised.

Contrary to promises people are losing their health insurance. Some employers can no longer cover spouses with their employer provided insurance plans. People are losing their doctors and at least half of all doctors are considering early retirement.

Obamacare has been a disaster for American jobs. Only big businesses have the resources to understand and comply with this 2,700 page law and its 20,000 pages of regulations, but big businesses are mostly cutting jobs. More regulations are promised, further destroying jobs.

Obamacare has been the poster-child for cronyism and manipulation for political purposes. Obama friends received waivers from harmful provisions. Other pain causing requirements have been delayed until after elections.

Now labor unions and other former Obamacare supporters don’t want it. Congress and their staffs don’t want it although the law specified that they were to feel its impact like other citizens. Fearing the consequences of Congressional pain, the administration exempted them. We, however, are not exempt.

It is time to end this national nightmare. Sign the petition at dontfundit2013.com. Demand that your congressman, senators, and congressional leaders defund and repeal Obamacare. Your prosperity, longevity, and quality of life may depend on it.
