People losing their health insurance, their doctors & their hospitals

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

The recourse of people without facts or principles is to make false charges, often calling opponents liars and users of hate speech. An example is Denise Doyle's letter of October 29.
Ms. Doyle's letter was published just after NBC documented (and Marilyn Tavenner, the head of federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, confirmed (http://goo.gl/sKbRTC) that since July 2010, President Obama has been falsely claiming "If (you) already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance." (See: http://goo.gl/1BIqIj)
July, 2010 administration documentation indicates that new Obamacare regulations and requirements will force insurance companies to cancel as many as 12 million policies that individual purchasers choose today.
Replacement insurance policies usually cost hundreds of dollars more per month for what many people consider worse insurance, e.g., current deductibles of around $1,500-3,500 generally increase to $5,000 for individuals and $10,000 for families.
Sue Klinkhamer, a former Democrat Congressman's staffer and Obamacare defender, reports that her insurance is increasing from $291 to $647.21 a month for a comparable policy. (See: http://goo.gl/wBfUVU)
Most Obamacare promises were false or broken. People are losing their insurance policies, their doctors, and even coverage at their local hospitals. Insurance premiums will increase, often significantly, in all but a few states. Obamacare's cost has tripled. Only a few thousand people came forward claiming they couldn't get insurance because of pre-existing conditions, and Obamacare will only insure about 1/3 of those without health insurance (while many others will lose their current insurance).
Regarding the government shutdown, Republicans passed bills that funded all of government with very minor Obamacare changes. Democrats closed down the government to protect President Obama's ability to change Obamacare for political reasons, including providing a taxpayer subsidy for Congress's health insurance, contrary to the Obamacare law, so that Congress could avoid the hardships suffered by other Obamacare users.
After listening to speeches by Senators Lee and Cruz; Congressmen Ryan, West, and Bachmann; Dr. Ben Carson, and talk-show-hosts Mark Levin and Glenn Beck, I understand why Ms. Doyle provided no examples of lies or hate speech at the Voter Values Summit, there aren't any. For intentional misrepresentations and hate speech look at Ms. Doyle's letter. The Value Voters Summit speeches primarily discussed values, ideas and principles, e.g., fiscally responsible government and equal opportunities for all. Listen for yourself: http://goo.gl/EnqeWJ
It is impossible to rationally and honestly defend the disaster that President Obama and the Democrat Party have created. Thus radical leftists like Denise Doyle try to deflect accurate criticism by making false claims about critics and repeating them endlessly in hope that their charges will hide the truth and overwhelm people's accurate observations.
