LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: The bread has bugs


Dear Editor,

With new and more devastating revelations surfacing every day about this administration’s handling – correction, mishandling – the launch of the ACA debacle we must ask ourselves: can our Republic survive this nightmare?

Even former President Bill Clinton is telling this president to come clean on his lies to the American people. Of course, that is a little hard to digest since that advice is coming from someone with such a sordid past, but he is right on this issue. At this point even some of the staunchest Democrat liberals, like Diane Feinstein, are saying keep your word Mr. President, let the people keep their policies and doctors.

Now that millions of cancellation notices are starting to hit Democrats across the country who by the way do not all have subpar health insurance as the spin masters like to tell you are singing a much different tune today. Meanwhile even those Democratic senators and representatives who blindly supported and voted for this legislation are headed for the lifeboats. Our most vocal Obamacare supporter in Weatherford, Dennis Tilley, in his latest submission to the Democrat is still trying to re-arrange the deck chairs on this Titanic.

Talk about blind faith in the face of scandal within scandals, i.e., the latest being so called “Navigators” coaching applicants to lie on their applications to get more out of the system. This should be easy to do because not enough security was built in to the system, which is now rife for identity theft.

I’m not going to dredge up all of the dire news about the ACA. It’s out there for all to see and read with a little effort. I just want to leave you with one important bit of advice – Republicans, conservatives, tea party members, et al, did not do this to you and your country; not one of them voted for this ill-conceived mess that has a good chance of destroying our health-care system as we know it today.

When election time rolls around remember who was solely responsible – the Democratic Party and the current president who forced this on the American people. Remember, if you do not like your senator or representative you do not have to keep them.
