Letter: Obama Healthcare Talk

Letter to the Editor

“Obamacare is an Obamanation.” “Obamacare is a Nightmare.” “Obamacare is a Train Wreck.” After these letter headlines it only gets worse with lies and innuendo and partisan outrage. Why do newspapers publish this—nothing but opinions from Obama-haters and Tea Party Republicans.

Yes, the Obama administration deserves to be on the hot seat, but Republican and Tea Party politicians are hypocritical for talking about Obamacares’ failed introduction, since they did everything possible to sabotage it. Most Republican governors have refused to set up state exchanges, forcing millions out in the cold in regards to healthcare.

Republicans in Congress, in a concerted effort, blocked funding for website contractors and refused to let Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius move money around to make up for Republican obstructions.

But there is good news; all this fuss about broken websites will become a historical footnote in no time as Obamacare is up and running smoothly.
