Shame On Democrats For Obamacare

October 5, 2018

Editor: When the left forced Obamacare down our throats, they said it would save the average family $2,500 on their premiums. Democrats were wrong. A study from the left-leaning Urban Institute and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found Obamacare exchanges jumped 32 percent nationally for the lowest-cost silver plan and 19.1 percent for gold plans, and that was just between 2017 and 2018, Obamacare was passed without a single Republican vote because Republicans believed this would cause diminished care, fewer choices, and higher costs. Republicans were right. This year, Democrats are at it again. This time, they are betting on Medicare for all, the closest thing to socialist medicine we have ever seen in the United States. A new caucus was formed, the Medicare for All Caucus, and 70 Democrats have signed up. The aim of this cabal is to push the United States toward a government-run system where the federal government ultimately pays for and approves all medical expenses. The private insurance that 156 million Americans currently enjoy through their employer would be eliminated. Instead, these people would be forced to use the government system. This program is estimated to have a 10-year $32 trillion price tag and tax hikes would be enacted to pay for it. Shame on the Democrats for fooling us once on health care with Obamacare. Shame on us if we allow them to fool us twice on health care with single-payer Medicare for All. Rose Ann Gaetano SCRANTON
