Obamacare hurts responsible people who take care of themselves

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Robert Moran's letter of November 1 provides more of a false picture than the October 11 Hannity/Fox News show that Moran complains about. Moran cites reporter Eric Stern who claims to know Obamacare and reported on follow-ups with the three couples on the Hannity show who told how Obamacare has impacted them. (Millions of Americans have similar problems.)
Stern claims that these couples would have found cheaper health insurance policies on healthcare.gov than quoted by their health insurance providers. Moran fails to indicate, perhaps because Stern doesn't highlight it, that the "quotes" he found for them come from a Kaiser Foundation (left-wing) SIMULATOR, and are not real quotes.
(Because of the false predictions of the man-made global warming alarmists, we all now know that simulators are "flawed". Despite their hysterical claims 20 years ago, we are not starving because of global warming, there hasn't been any global warming for 15 years, and the Arctic icepack hasn't vanished, it is bigger now than in recent history.)
Perhaps Stern can be somewhat excused for not identifying real policies and premiums for the couple's to examine, because the healthcare.gov website still has major problems almost a month later.
Working people shouldn't be expected to struggle with a problem-plagued government website. And, generally people, like these three couples who have been responsibly buying their own health insurance, expect to continue to do so without government "help".
Stern falsely claims that Obamacare doesn't impact small businesses. Obamacare impacts everyone by churning policies and rates, and by the uncertainty caused by thousands of pages of new regulations annually.
Obamacare was expected to insure about 15 million new people. For three years the Obama administration knew that about 15 million responsible Americans will lose their health insurance this year, but they lied to hide this fact.
According to administration estimates, approximately 78 million more Americans will lose their health insurance next year after the one year employer mandate delay that President Obama provided to postpone this obvious disaster.
Sadly, Mr. Moran's irrational hatred of his political opponents blinds him to reality. President Obama and other Democrats lie when they claim to stick up for the middle class and poor against the rich. Their programs almost always benefit the rich and/or special interest groups while hurting the middle class and frequently hurting the poor by depriving them of opportunities and incentives.
Obamacare, like most big government programs, hurts the responsible people who struggle to take care of themselves, their families, and their communities. Despite their promises of delivering Nirvana, much more Democrat Party inflicted pain is coming for middle income and poor Americans.
