To The Daily Sun,
Hats off to Dale Channing Eddy of Gilford and his fabulous letter outlining the tragedy of Obamacare, now morphing to " Obamascare" as its start day nears. She hit every nail on the head that will eventually be in the Obamacare's coffin. This legislation will not survive as written. There are too many millions harmed by the unintended consequences as Dale so aptly pointed out and too few benefiting.
Even unions are outraged, They are trying to GUT the legislation at its core. All Obamacare does is harm them. This is ironic considering unions spent tens of millions in DUES MONEY backing the legislation four years ago. When Nancy Pelosi finally opened the famous OBAMACARE BOX and peeked inside the union-eating DEVIL popped out. You remember that great punch line, it referenced the fact that not one Democrat had ever read the Obamacare legislation before it was passed because much it had yet to be written and what had been was in Egyptian hieroglyphics.
Millions of union workers will dumped from employer health rolls forced to buy insurance on exchanges that will cost them much more. The so called " Cadillac plans" that many unions fought hard and long for will now be highly taxed, forcing employers to provide less coverage in the future. The 30 hour, full-time employee mandate is causing millions of union workers to have their hours of work cut forcing them to find a second job, if they can. Good luck on that — jobs are scarce since Obama took office. Health insurance has always been a HUGE union bargaining chip that unions always managed to surpass non-union workers in obtaining. Above others,, gold-plated union health care is now DEAD. Obamacare will control almost all of how health care is priced, delivered, and offered. Health care has essentially become just another government-controlled and much-financed bureaucracy. Obamacare destroys in one day what unions fought decades to accomplish. No wonder they are SCREAMING they want it GUTTED. They want Obamacare so modified it has already been determined it would require reopening debate in congress. You think Obama is going to let that happen. Only when your 90-year-old grandmother competes in the 2016 Olympics high jump event.
Harmed most by Obamacare will not be unions, though they may scream loudest. It will be the YOUNG generation defined between the ages 24 and 36. The people with the lowest per capita wealth in America will be transferring more wealth to the age group with the highest in America, those over age 60. All with Democrats in the peanut gallery screaming we have "TOO MUCH INEQUALITY IN AMERICA". They create EVERY BIT OF IT . The young among us are DROWNING under the burden of monster levels of college debt, now the highest in history, combined with one of the lousiest job markets in history. The young will be forced to live much LESSER lifestyles in order to increase the wealth of those already with more or be fined. Remember this prediction. Millions of the young will choose to pay the FINES under Obamacare BECAUSE THEY ARE FAR LESS than buying insurance, with or without a subsidy. If as predicted millions of them do not buy insurance TO PAY FOR THE SICK the cost of premiums for health insurance will "EXPLODE" out of this universe. The health insurance rolls will become totally dominated only by those who are SICK and incredibly costly.
America warned of this impending DOOM from the beginning. There has NEVER been A POLL ever taken to this day where the majority of Americans favored the Obamacare solution to our health care troubles either before it was enacted or after it was enacted with as we all know 100 percent Democrat votes. Democrats could not find even ONE Republican who would agree to be associated with what they knew was the impending DISASTER of Obamacare.
