LETTERS TO EDITOR: Delaying individual health care mandate the fair thing to do



The Heartsill and McGuire families

Here we go again

Dear Editor,

The Community Reinvestment Act served up a big helping of affordable housing. Did you notice how well that worked out?

We are going to get a big dose of taxes and a big dose of not much health care, at a higher cost. The majority of the folks who are signing up on the state exchanges are going for Medicaid. See if you can figure out why. It never ceases to amaze me that the old goats and the young lambs love to follow the Judas goat to their destruction.

The Obamacare website has cost the taxpayers millions of dollars and, by the time it is fixed, it is probably going to cost millions more. By the time the dust settles from the train wreck there will be more people without insurance than there will be with insurance. I venture to say that is the plan, because there are those that want a single-pay system. There is no doubt in the mind of a liberal that it will be easier to enroll 300 million in the program than it is to insure those without insurance. You can see for yourself how efficiently things roll through the bureaucracy. Every facet of government is the epitome of competence and efficiency – not. It will be your money they will be spending, and no expense will be spared.

The president will get to the bottom of the problem and make those accountable. I suppose that he will use the same method that he used in fast and furious and the Benghazi debacle, and any other problem that may arise on his watch. His solution is to go play golf or go to fundraising events and hope that another disaster will cause folks to forget.
