LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: The bread has bugs


I believe there is one thing for certain: if you like to wait several months to see a doctor, you can wait and no one will take it away from you. If you think health care will be more economical, you are having a beautiful dream that will turn into the most hideous nightmare you can ever imagine. The folks who designed Obamacare are on mind-altering drugs or are just plain insane. Or could they be disillusioned by believing Karl Marx. It may work temporarily, but in the long run it will destroy this nation, as it has done to others.

Check the history of other countries that have tried and failed. Socialism is a flawed philosophy and won’t work due to human nature. The non producers will always take the advantage of the producers, and when the producers notice that the non producers are eating higher on the hog they say why not me? When you have all non producers, well, “Houston we have a problem,” as the astronauts would say.

Richard Feuilly, Weatherford

Cancelled policies

Dear Editor,

Insurance policies can be cancelled for one reason – non-payment of premiums. Insurance companies look for various reasons to send non-renewal notices to agents and clients on policies they no longer find profitable and do not want to keep.

ACA was a good excuse for those companies to rid their base of all those policyholders by sending non-renewal letters, giving the 60-day period as required by law. Cancellation notices do not give a client a 60-day notice. ACA did a good thing for people who needed coverage that private insurance companies excluded from their underwriting rules.

Money and their bottom line is their only interest – not the clients who try so hard to be able to afford to pay for their coverage. They give as little coverage as possible for premiums charged, and increase premiums during term – and when the policyholder becomes unprofitable due to losses – out go the non-renewal notices. Their selling point of their service and product was the people needed the coverage to protect them and their family went out the window.
