Why deny millions health care benefits?

info@islandpacket.comOctober 20, 2013 

I am a long-time subscriber to The Island Packet and a long-time resident of Sun City Hilton Head. I also subscribe to the weekend New York Times.

Does this make me a liberal? I also at times voted for President Dwight Eisenhower and President Ronald Reagan. I will dispense with my credentials.

I resent the slant of certain recent news articles on the Affordable Care Act. We Sun City senior residents, and Americans in general, are a very charitable people. Yet we strongly object to giving 31 million people the same privilege we so richly enjoy.

Were Social Security and Medicare termed socialism when first enacted?
