Your votes will have a huge impact on health care

September 28, 2012
The Marietta Times

I feel compelled to respond to misleading statements and commercials regarding Medicare that have been "approved" by President Obama and the Democratic party. It's as if they went to the Bill Clinton School of Politics, and were taught that as long as you don't think you'll get caught, it's OK to lie to or mislead voters. For me one of worst lies is that they promise they will not change Medicare. Presidential candidate Obama said the current Medicare system was not sustainable. Now he's saying he won't change it? President Obama, when handed a supermajority in Congress, paid no heed to his promise to hold healthcare debates on C-Span but instead pushed through the 1,600-page act that no one in Congress had yet read. Obama and others in the Democratic party claim they will "fix" the current law. Presently there are no hearings scheduled and evidently they are hoping the voters will forget about these promises just like the debates.
