Letter to the editor: Repeal Obamacare

Thursday, July 11, 2013 - 12:01 am

A headline of the July 8, Journal Gazette reads: “Health law menaces student jobs.” The article explains how full-time IPFW computer programmer/students will, because of Obamacare, soon lose their full-time pay status, revert to part-time and be required to obtain health insurance on their own if they can afford it.

This is one of many newspapers that in 2010 proclaimed the great benefits of the “Affordable Health Care Act.” What has changed in their editorial policies? Have some of the vast problems with this 2,700-page law with 20,000-plus regulations hit home at this and other left-leaning media outlets?

President Obama was adamant there would be no changes in this law, yet, he has signed at least seven bills — passed by the Republican House and approved by the Democratic Senate — that repeal or defund some provisions of this train wreck nearing the end of the track.

The administration has also violatedfederal laws by providing hundreds of exceptions from Obamacare to unions and other favored groups. Big businesses love this law. It has permitted them to cut millions of people from full-time to part-time jobs with few or no benefits.

We are now well aware that Obamacare is driving up costs, pushing people out of coverage they like, reducing wages, making it impossible for small businesses to hire people and giving the Internal Revenue Service carte blanche vast new powers.

Before this out-of-control train crashes, destroying the world’s finest medical care field and driving our economy into a full depression, all freedom-loving media outlets should proclaim in their headlines: “Repeal Obamacare.”
