Letters to the Editor: Do we have a dictator?

Do We Have A Dictator?

Dear Editor,

Is it constitutional to enforce the laws that you like and refuse to enforce the one that you dislike? We hear that the Affordable Healthcare Act is the law of the land. Get used to it. I did not know that the president could pick and choose the parts that he wants to use to exempt certain groups from the unaffordable mess. I was under the impression that once he signed a document into law to change it, the House and Senate must revisit the bill and send the new version to the president for his signature. The president fancies himself as a constitutional lawyer, but in reality, he is nothing more than a constitution shredder.

When he was on the campaign trail, he said marriage is between one man and one woman. I suppose the man could have a change of opinion, but it has the appearance of a bald face lie just to get elected. Colorado and Washington states have legalized marijuana, but federal law says that it is illegal. The president said we have bigger fish to fry, and I agree, but if you can ignore one law, why not all laws?

The world-renowned Cleveland Clinic announced that it will cut jobs and slash its $6 billion annual budget 5 to 6 percent. The Democrats are saying that as many as 50 million Americans will not have health care, if Obamacare is not implemented. In my humble opinion, if it is fully implemented, there will be 250 million Americans without health care, because all we will have are navigators and IRS agents making sure that we are dancing to the Obama crock. Just in case you think that a navigator is a Lincoln automobile, you will be in for a great shock when one comes knocking on your door to tell you, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help you.” The paperwork that will be required  to administer the affordable health care act will cost more than the actual treatment of patients in most cases. Does anyone know of a government program that actually costs what it was supposed to cost?

  • Letters to the Editor: Showing respect

    Dear Editor, My sister Robbie Benton’s funeral was Friday afternoon at White’s Funeral Home. The gravesite was outside of Mineral Wells. The respect shown by the good folks of Parker County and the surrounding area was overwhelming. I would say at least 90 percent of drivers pulled over in respect of the loss of life.

    Dear Editor,

  • Letters to the Editor: Protecting Medicare Advantage

    As one of over 14 million Americans who rely on a Medicare Advantage policy for my medical needs, I know it is crucial for Washington to protect the Advantage program’s budget. The Affordable Care Act already slashed $200 billion from the program. It would be a mistake to dismantle a program that produces better healthcare results than regular Medicare, while often costing seniors much less in the process.

  • Letters To The Editor: Kelly response

    In a recent column, William Kelly stated his opposition to abortion and asked the question, “What do you think?” Well, I think we should all publically express our gratitude to CVS for their announced plan to stop selling tobacco products.

  • Letters To The Editor: Entitlement mentality

    Traffic law violations seem to be changing. During the 25 years I spent driving in Parker and Tarrant counties, it was usually the young men and women in small sporty cars that ran the red lights, stop and yield signs and regularly grossly exceeded the posted speed limits.

  • Letters to the Editor: Stop the bailout

    Dear Editor, The administration and congress knew that ObamaCare would fail but have had a plan all along to bail out the private insurance companies that supported the law with taxpayer money. Of course, this plan was kept hidden from American citizens that are already burdened by taxes. Congress should do everything it can to stop this disastrous bill.
