Obamacare

By From page A5 | October 02, 2013

EDITOR:

Mr. Wasserman’s long letter supporting the virtues of Obamacare can be answered by a much shorter one.

I could go on with many horror stories like the report just released showing that men in Tennessee will face an average 290 percent increase in premiums and women 197 percent. There are many such stories out there but there is a much simpler way to show the warts on Obamacare.

If Obamacare is so good, why do Congress, Congressional aides and so many other privileged groups affiliated with the administration get exemptions from it? If it’s better than the alternative, why not exempt your enemies like the Tea Party from it?

Recently a Republican senator offered an amendment to make Obamacare exactly the same for them and their aides as it is for rank-and-file Americans — no extra subsidies, exactly the same. That almost caused a panic attack in the Senate. The opposition to being treated like average Americans was swift and loud.

Folks, these are the people that voted this law in. When the cook won’t eat his own food you need to run, not walk from that restaurant.
