LETTER: Obamacare questions should be answered

To the Editor:

If I were a newscaster, I would ask pertinent questions concerning Obamacare and demand the truth.

Is it true the president who initiated Obamacare, his administration, all of Congress and thousands of federal employees are exempt? If so, what health care coverage do they have, and who pays for their coverage? What are their co-pays, deductibles and premiums, and what is the total cost and total number of those exempt? In comparison, which is the best plan — Obamacare or Federal Employee Plan? Let’s take a medical procedure and run the numbers. Would they, under the federal plan, borrow money for their kid’s braces? How about vision care?

North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan has been very vocal in her support of Obamacare. I would ask of Senator Hagan if Obamacare is a good plan for her and her family and demand a truthful answer.

I would ask of America why a certain segment of the elite populous is privileged to be exempt, and why the mass populous is ordered to ram Obamacare down our throats?
