We really can do better than Obamacare

August 17, 2013
The Marietta Times

Recently I was having a discussion with a liberal acquaintance of mine about Obamacare. He assumes the government will do only good things and that the comments made by politicians in support of it are true. After becoming frustrated with me pointing out the bad parts of Obamacare, he countered with "evidently you're not a Christian if you don't support it." After I overcame my initial surprise of a liberal invoking Christian morals to support a cause, I thought about it. While there are some good parts in Obamacare, its bad parts far outweigh them. Obama is already trying to deflect these by saying you can't point out the failings Obamacare, because every Federal program has problems; however, this is exactly what he and his supporters did with the current system. How are you going to correct problems if you don't identify them and what happened to the President's promise to have public healthcare discussions and all the "promises" he and others made about fixing Obamacare? Several other falsehoods used in support of Obamacare are saying if you prefer your doctor, insurance, or hospital, you can keep them and that everyone will be covered. Obamacare leaves 10 million uncovered while raising the cost for others. The program also allows the IRS to access your personal bank accounts and take money to pay for what Obamacare decides you owe. I hope you have more trust in the IRS than I do. Claiming Obamacare will be paid for out of "savings from waste and inefficiency' is another lie Obama and his supporters are still using.
