Obamacare won’t work

At a recent event, Congresswoman Maxine Waters said the tea party “could go straight to hell.” Interesting. Why is it when someone is feeling the heat, they get hysterical and start smearing the opposition? I’d like to tell you that I support the tea party. The tea party is made up of true Americans that don’t want to compromise the future of this nation by enslaving their children and grandchildren under socialism. Socialism does not work! Check out the problems the Greeks, Spaniards and Italians are having trying to get their debt paid off by asking their neighbors to pay it off for them. It is absolutely ludicrous to believe that Obamacare is going to work. You oldsters out there are going to be hit the hardest. You will be paying more for your medical care in co-payments than ever before. Your Medicare premiums are going to skyrocket right when you can’t afford any more expenses. I saw a letter to the editor in this paper asking what was wrong with the government offering medical insurance for everyone. My answer is this. If the plan was so great, why are government employees and special union workers exempt from participating? Gee, could it be that they are going to have a better medical plan than you?
