The long reach of the Unaffordable Care Act that I affectionately like to call it has touched my family with a chilling effect.
I wrote a letter to the editor recently as a counterpoint to those who worship at Obama’s alter and support the Obamanation (pardon the pun) called the Affordable Care Act.
By now most of America has realized the exact opposite of “affordable” is true. This is the largest, most costly fraud ever foisted upon the great people of this country. The latest count is 26 new taxes on everything from medical devices to individual health plans, which on average have risen a whopping 20 percent! The total monetary estimate is around $1 trillion dollars – double the original estimate. This fact comes from the Joint Committee on Taxation Estimates, prepared by Ways and Means Committee Staff.
For all low-information voters out there actual facts and figures are not that hard to find, instead of falling for the propaganda from this regime. This week I heard from my younger brother, who is a small business owner in Pennsylvania, a painting contractor who is driven to be good at what he does and has grown his business every year for the last eight years, hiring new employees every one of those years and now employing 62 people. On Monday he met with his company’s health-care provider and was told because of Obamacare his rate will be increasing 22 percent! This is unsustainable for his small business; his only options are to fire people, reduce their hours to part-time levels or pay the prohibitive fines for not providing healthcare.
His dedicated employees cannot live on part-time wages and without them he cannot grow his business. Whatever he chooses to do his business stops growing – is that the goal of an out-of-control government? It seems that the creation of another generation of takers is the goal regardless of the damage to the economy.
