Letter: Obamacare is a costly disaster

November 19, 2013 

Obamacare is a sheer act of totalitarianism. It is a huge muiltitrillion dollar, taxpayer-funded mistake, one that will lead this nation, along with its $17 trillion debt, to financial ruin. The start of which was implemented when Obamacare was voted on without a single Republican vote.

We need a health care system that is secure and affordable for everyone, including future generations. Obamacare is none of that. It's about control and nothing more. It is a disaster for people who so far have been unable to sign-up for so-called benefits that aren't benefits at all but instead cost increases, tax hikes, system shutdowns, doctor shortages and insurance cancellations.

Obamacare is going to have a disastrous effect on unions, the working middle class and our economy, which is one step closer to financial collapse with trillions in unfunded liabilities with Obama saying, "We don't have a debt problem."

When this financial house of cards finally falls, my questions wull be these: "What happens to the working middle class, the unions, pensions and benefits that have been gained over the years? What happens to our Constitution, America and her people that have been kept out of the discussion?"
