LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Obamacare is another disastrous spending spree

Question of the Day

Is it still considered bad form to talk politics during a social gathering?

Remember this statement from President Obama? “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period.” Four years after he said that, the passage of Obamacare has resulted in a disastrous implementation.

Significant lack of testing followed by several presidential edicts to change the “law” blatantly disregarded our constitutional process. In 2010, then-House Speaker Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, stated of the gargantuan health care measure: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Well, we now know what’s in it, don’t like it and want a major overhaul. The health care system was changed for an estimated “30 to 40 million uninsured” at the expense of the remaining 300 million Americans who were pleased with their insurance.

All of the rollout mess and resulting chaos is estimated by the Government Accountability Office to be costing us $350 million. Welcome to the new American world of uncontrolled spending and lack of oversight of government actions. It’s a high-finance, free-spending culture that will lead to American hardships and greater debt and deficit. In November, vote out those who supported this mess.
