Here are a few reasons why 57% of population rejects ACA

To The Daily Sun,

In response to Kate Miller's assertion that a canvas of unbiased think tanks support Obamacare and the ACA: rubbish.

President Obama said the following: "If you like your health care plan you can keep it. It will reduce the cost of health care premiums by $2,500 per family. I will not sign any health care plan that adds to our deficit."

It transpires that the first two assertions are wrong. As to the third, since Ms. Miller likes to tout objective and credible sources, there is this from the Hoover Institute's Charles Blahaus: "The ACA is expected to increase net federal spending by more than $1.35 trillion and add more than $340 billion to the deficit in the next 10 years and increasing amounts thereafter."

There are reasons that 57 percent of the populace rejects the ACA; these are but a few.

Too bad we have to wait so long to vote these people out

To The Laconia Daily Sun,

We've all heard the term "enemies abroad". Well we don't have to worry about that any more, with what we have "working for us" in D.C. The fellas there will kill our country quicker than anything outside of our country. Just think, we actually voted for these people. No person elected should be "in" for more than two terms; also if they shut off wages and benefits of innocent folks they too should have their wages "stopped". Someone wrote that idea last week and I agree!

Too bad they have to wait a long time to vote them out and who knows who will be available and what will they do. Limited terms sure sound good instead of paying and taking care of them medically the rest of their lives for sinking the country. I guess brats just can't play nice.

From Texas, thanks so much to the lady in the Subaru wagon

To The Daily Sun,

There is certainly a lot to celebrate in New Hampshire, the majestic fall foliage, maple products, and the like. However, its absolute invaluable resource is its people.

My wife and I were on vacation and, for about the 1000'th time, found ourselves hopelessly lost. We were off a road in Laconia trying to decipher maps and travel books when a woman stopped and asked if everything was all right. We replied that we were from out of state and were looking for a place to stay. She began rattling off directions to a hotel near where we were. She accurately recognized our bewilderment and said, "Look, if you don't mind following me, I'll drive you there." And she did. Pointing to the hotel, she gave a cheery wave goodbye and drove off.

Now, that may not seem remarkable to some, but for this gray bearded Texan, it was so kind that I am compelled to share this with you. So, to the pretty lady in the Subaru wagon, many, many heart felt thanks!

McCain & other GOP elities are much too eager to surrender

To The Daily Sun,

Of course I expected that John McCain, Ayotte, and Graham would not be there for the fight FOR Americans, but to hear McCain is ready to throw in the towel, it makes me wonder; do you know the damage you are doing to the future of my grandchildren and others?

McCain and other elite Republicans (in their minds) like Judd Gregg are so anxious to give in to Barack Hussein Obama. Once we have completely lost all that is good about America we won't be going back — ever. Instead of McCain and other light weight Republicans buying into Obama's plan, why aren't they demanding that the ILLEGAL INVADERS should not be holding a rally on our land, and denying WWII vets and others to visit the memorial? Why? Why are senior citizens, and visitors to our country denied, and not in a nice way, access to our parks, etc?

Obama is punishing us and you remain silent? Why? Please tell me why our country and families are no longer important to you. As long as killing babies in the womb, or right after arriving, you could care less about what the Obama Zombie and Obama, do, right?

Every time Obama talks about the children he makes me ill. He doesn't care about babies — who someday become citizens of this great country. Aw, bring in the Illegal Invaders to fill the slots.

Democrat-controlled Senate is hell bent on destroying the USA

To The Daily Sun,

Social Security and Medicare are government-controlled programs FULLY paid for in advance by recipients! Our lying government steals those reserve funds for their waste, then call the payments entitlements, as if not earned. That matches everything LIAR Obama says and does, backed up by Democrats in Congress. Look at the hundreds of executive orders Obama has put out, ALL leading to his COMPLETE takeover of the USA, as ultimate dictator.
Why are all Democrats suckers for his takeover? Our Republican House is right on trying to protect all of us, while the Democrat-controlled Senate is hell bent on destroying the USA. Never have we seen a president so pigheaded and unwilling to discuss his gross errors.
