LETTER: Opposition increases against Obamacare

Aug. 29, 2013 @ 04:55 AM

To the Editor:

The populace has spoken, and continues to speak; however, our elected officials continue to ignore the wishes of their constituency. According to a recent Fox News Obamacare poll …

There is a groundswell of opposition to Obamacare rising up all across America:

* 71 percent of respondents believe it will raise taxes.

* 65 percent believe it will add to the federal deficit.

* 62 percent believe it will raise premiums (or already has).

* 52 percent say they disapprove of the law.

In addition, we continue to see reports that members of the medical profession are throwing in the towel rather than put up with the demands that are included in the Obamacare legislation. We are especially disappointed in our North Carolina Republican representatives who are not stepping forward to oppose this oppressive legislation. History as proven that socialism doesn’t work!
