To The Daily Sun,
Unbelievably, Democratic Senators and Congressmen at Donald Trump's speech before Congress rejected not only his plans but the very idea that American presidents should put the interests of our country and American ctizens ﬁrst.
It's understandable that Democrats oppose repealing Obamacare; it's been a nearly century old dream that Democrats felt would ensure their eternal control of our government. To them that justified implementing Obamacare against the clearly expressed wishes of the American people, without prior open review, and without Republican input or support.
Obamacare hurts far more Americans than it helps, although we only hear about the approximately 6 percent more Americans insured with money taken from others, including hard-working struggling taxpayers.
But, almost all of the 85 percent of the American people who previously had health insurance suffered because Obamacare increased premiums, reduced choices, reduced wage increases, reduced access to medical care, forced harmful changes on our health care system, increased medical device and service costs, and/or lost jobs. Obamacare also took $700 billion out of the already inadequate Medicare Trust Fund further jeopardizing future healthcare for seniors.
President Obama's repeated lies were exposed. People discovered they couldn't keep their doctors, hospitals, good insurance plans, or save $,2500; that Obamacare pays for abortions and covers illegal aliens; and, despite everything, about 9 percent of Americans remain uninsured.
President Trump's proposals, including repealing and replacing Obamacare, aren't radical or, in a political environment dedicated to helping the American people, difficult to achieve.
Any president could ask businessmen what encourages investment and job creation, and then do those things while protecting our environment; could enforce our immigration laws to protect the American people and workers; could develop a market-based patient-centered health care system that addresses the real causes of cost increases and uninsured Americans; could ensure veterans receive the benefits they deserve; could make children's educational opportunity and results the top priority; could support law enforcement in their difficult and dangerous efforts to protect Americans; and could ensure that our military is adequately funded to protect our soldiers and our country.
I'm sure that most Americans, Republicans, Democrats, independents, and others want all these things. Unfortunately, there are special interests which benefit from the status quo, who oppose these common sense changes to benefit the American people.
Sadly, Democrat politicians have thrown in with the special interests that benefit from the status quo and provide financial and activist support for Democrat candidates. And this is why Democrat senators and congressmen oppose Trump's common sense efforts to make Americans safer, freer, healthier, and more prosperous.
