To the Editor: I saw a friend of mine in town a week or so ago, he said "Why don't you ever write to the ‘Sun’ about Obamacare?"
Well, just what do we know about it? When buying anything, the first thing we do is check into it. Nancy Pelosi said “None of us know what’s in it, just buy it and find out later.” Does she really think we are that stupid?
For some reason, hardly anything is being said about what it covers. I find that strange, don't you? President Obama promised that if we like our present insurance, we can keep it. Surprise. Now a lot of people are being canceled by their present health insurance they are happy with. I guess they think we are too dumb to know what's best for our families. They think people in their 60s need maternity insurance and people that don't drink or take drugs, must buy substance abuse coverage.
I hate to say that our President lied to us, but call it whatever you like, he is determined that everyone be on Obamacare. It was suppose to be cheaper than our present coverage, but now people are finding out it will cost hundreds of dollars more per month, plus higher deductibles. This is his idea of federally regulated and standardized national health insurance.
The Washington politicians get their own insurance, taxpayer paid, why don't they want to change to Obamacare, since they said is so good? I've heard that Obamacare will be the largest transfer of wealth in recent American history.
Last but not least — how would you like to send all your personal, financial information, social security numbers, health information to Washington?
That's a scary thought.
