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

(Continued)

The president is saying that we need to get the health care train wreck fixed and get the immigration problem solved and get started on creating jobs. I wish I were wrong, but I’m afraid that Obamacare is what caused the slow jobs recovery and will continue to hinder the job market. The jobs that government creates are a drain on the federal budget.

Raising the debt limit will accomplish the same thing that the terrorists were trying to do on 9/11. The twin towers were targeted because they were centers of world trade and finance. The plan was to cripple the free market and capitalism. The cry from the Democrats was that shutting down the government was a crime against the American people. Just in case you failed to notice, it was Harry Reid who shut down the government. President Obama said that Republicans were throwing a tantrum because they weren’t getting what they wanted. Seems to me that the president was throwing a tantrum, also. The government was fully funded, only the train wreck was not funded.

There is no doubt that health care costs need to be fixed, but as you can see government is not the most efficient entity to solve the problem. Shutting down government for two weeks is nothing compared to what will take place if out of control spending continues.

Richard Feuilly, Weatherford
