Shaheen went along with powers-that-be & we got Obamacare

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

Just a couple weeks ago President Obama told Bill O'Reilly that there wasn't a bit of corruption at the IRS. Strange — sure looked that way when all those conservative groups and individuals were being targeted before the last election. Just a coincidence these folks didn't support Obama and his polices I suppose.

Funny though, because just last week Sen. Chuck Schumer and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen led a group of Democratic senators, being targeted by campaign ads in their own states, asking the IRS and other federal agencies to "crack down" on these groups. Nope, no sign of any corruption here, no undue political pressure, can't expect the rich and powerful to be accountable for their words and actions after all.

Although it does seem to me I heard Chuck and Jeanne and the others telling us we could keep our health insurance if we liked our health insurance. We could keep our doctors if we liked our doctors too. But that proved not to be true. Now the president's new line is you can keep them if you have the money to keep them. Now isn't that just a fine example of a Catch-22.

If Jeanne had taken the time to actually read the law before joining the rush to shove it down the throats of Americans millions of people could have been saved from a bad law. Too bad she went along with the powers-that-be and decided to protect her own political backside rather then protecting the people of New Hampshire and America
