An April 27 letter asked why many readers don't like Obamacare. It's the first step toward universal health care, which our Canadian friends say is a disaster. You have to wait months to see a doctor or a specialist.
The writer claims he received excellent service in Europe and Canada. I wonder if it's because his wife is a physician who falls into a special group.
He's looking for a simple explanation as to why we don't like Obamacare. It was rammed through the Senate without Democrats reading it. Senate rules were changed, and not one Republican voted for it.
Obama lied when he said you can keep your doctor period; you can keep your plan period. He also said costs would be reduced.
Policies of 6.3 million were canceled because of Obamacare. When individuals attempted to replace their plans (especially the terminally ill) they were told they couldn't keep their doctors. Similar plans were non-existent and costs were prohibitive.
Last year, my liberal friend said Obamacare is better than nothing. Recently his wife's plan was canceled, costs increased, she couldn't keep her doctor, and she wasn't sure whether the new plan would cover her expensive medication. He now says Obamacare is a disaster.
If Obamacare is so great, how come the majority of Congress, staff and the president aren't covered by it?
If health care is so great in Europe and Canada, how come their wealthy citizens come here for treatment for serious illness?
