Letter To The Editor

Obama's health care act is destroying this country

by Don J. Jones Sr., Newnan

The writer of the letter “Where are the Republicans?” always uses words or phrases that leads you to think what he is saying is correct.

“Affordable” health care is not true. My wife and I have already received notice that our insurance is going up in April (We don’t have some company paying for our insurance as he does).

This is due to his so-called president’s health care act. His so-called leader of the House, before the act (over 2,800 pages) was passed, said, “We will pass the act, then we will see what is in it.”

Each day that passes, we are finding out what is in it. It doesn’t need to be improved on, it needs to be repealed! It was passed with the liberals saying it would cost the taxpayers over $800 billion dollars.

Wrong!

They now say it will cost over $2 trillion dollars.

He also said over 75 percent of Americans were in favor of health care reform. He didn’t tell you that about the same percent was against his president’s health care act. He also said people were forced to endure sickness and death simply because they are unable to pay for treatment.

That is untrue. He needs to read signs at hospitals that say they will care for all patients. His president’s policies, lies and so-called health care is going to sink this country. The government needs to stay out of our lives. The liberals and unions are pushing our country over the cliff.
