It's important to remember the people who voted for Obamacare

To The Daily Sun,

I hope that all of you young people with no health care are getting your money together to buy Obamacare. In New Hampshire, they are meetings on the implementation of Obamacare. Here are some facts for you:

— The Affordable Care Act (ACA) A/K/A Obamacare is so complex that federal government is funding navigators to explain what is going on. A quick question: did you have a navigator for auto or your homeowner's insurance?

— One of the goals of Obamacare was that competition in the health care insurance market would reduce premiums. However, there is only one carrier (company) on the health insurance exchange. If you can only buy clothes at one store in N.H., is this competition?

— Some of you may say, I am not going to buy health care insurance. If you don't, you will be subject to a tax. In the insurance lingo, this is called the individual mandate.

— There was an employer mandate whereby employers would have to provide health care to full time employees. However, President Obama decided to postpone the employer mandate. Should you be upset about this, I am. What is fair for the employers should be fair for the employees.

— Congress and their staff regardless of income are getting a 75 percent subsidy on Obamacare. Are you?

I would strongly recommend that everyone familiarize themselves on Obamacare. It is important to know the names of the people who voted for Obamacare. This is the gift from Rep. Shea-Porter and Senator Shaheen.
