LETTER: It’s time to take our country back

To the Editor:

I would like to bring attention to the debacle [created] by The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). It seems as if the president has realized that his train wreck coming is getting ready to happen, and his fellow Democrats are jumping off board before impact. With millions getting ready to lose their insurance, all we can do now is wait to pick up the pieces. I think this is what it will take for America to wake up. When Americans get hit in the pockets, they will start to open their eyes. If you think it’s a bad situation now, just wait until full implementation goes into effect next year. We haven’t seen anything yet.

I would like everyone to remember back in 2009, when Obama and Reid both made false promises that “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it.” It’s all falling apart, and his liberal cronies are now leaving him hanging out to dry. North Carolina is one of the states being hit the hardest with the ACA. Healthcare coverage [costs] for us as Carolinians are tripling and quadrupling. Universal healthcare is what Sen. Kay Hagan ran on last election. Is this what we voted for? The writing was on the wall, and people chose to ignore it. Everything about the ACA is a failure from beginning to end.

I would like people to realize the tricks that the Obama administration is trying to pull after their realization of failure. Now, without congressional approval, he wants to let people keep their plans until 2014. They will now do everything in their power to delay the effects of this law until after midterm elections. After the midterm elections, they won’t have anyone left that can bear the responsibility of Obamacare. The president will then be

in his last two years, the lawmakers left in Washington will be in their last term and no one will care about how the people will be suffering.

It’s now time for the people to stand together and take our country back. If we don’t do it ... we, the people, will be left holding the bill and [with] no one to pay it. Remember, all that glitters isn’t gold.
