To The Daily Sun,
We all know by now that the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) was nothing more than a pack of lies. Does everyone remember, "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan," "If you like your doctor (or hospital) you can keep your doctor (or hospital)," "You'll save $2,500 a month on your insurance premium,"?
These were just some of the lies that the Democrats sold us in their scheme to push this on America. The rest they hid from us such that the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told us, "We have to pass the bill so that you can you can find out what's in it." This is not how we pass laws in the free and open society that is America. Not one Republican voted for this abomination. We have only Democrats to thank for this.
We now know why they lied. If we were told the truth about this plan, the Democrats who voted for it would never have been re-elected. In fact, Majority Leader Harry Reid broke the Senate rules to get this passed. So complete was the deception, that Jonathan Gruber, an architect of the plan, was seen on camera, afterward, stating the American people were too stupid to figure this out.
Well we're smart enough to know when we've been sold a pack of lies. Everyone's premiums are now skyrocketing, even those not on Obamacare. Our deductibles have gone through the roof too, but by design. This program was designed to fail so that single-payer insurance, run by the government, will be the only option, for everyone.
Ask yourself this, how's that working for our veterans? Do you think the VA delivers quality health care right now? How's the Indian Health Service doing? When the government is the only health care insurer you can turn to, you'll get DMV-quality service. No one wants that.
Hillary Clinton has tried to convince us "it needs to be fixed." But will you allow those who lied to us about this to begin with, fix it? We can do better. It's time to scrap this failure and start over, in the light of day.
Please join me in re-electing Frank Guinta and other dedicated Republicans to restore faith and trust in our health care system. Repeal and replace is the only sensible option.
