An early morning call from an irate Obama fanatic shocked me awake, raking me over the coals for my letter (“Obama fails in every conceivable way,” Jan. 27). In her second “unlisted number” call I addressed her as “Ginny” and she was surprised, but she is so transparent. AJ Website Reader vitriol was nasty but demanding proof. Here’s some. 1) “Barack Obama is indisputably linked to Maoist thug Andy Stern. The union boss ran the public sector racket SEIU before retiring in late 2010 to play a less public role in the Obama program to ‘fundamentally transform’ America.” 2) “Barack Obama managed to offend everyone with a brain and a heart at the same time during his remarks on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. The irony is that Obama likely would have been killed in the womb if his liberal forerunners had had their way.” 3) “The overreaching tendencies of Washington, D.C. have brought us from the most prosperous, free nation on earth, to being just a few steps above a banana republic.” Randy Goodwin - Beat Obama News Letter III 4) “ObamaCare will result in skyrocketing insurance costs and physicians leaving the field in droves, making it harder to afford and find medical care.” 5) “You are young and don’t want health insurance? You are starting up a small business and need to minimize expenses, and one way to do that is to forego health insurance? Tough! You have to pay $750 annually for that privilege.” Section 1501 6) “The government will extract a fee of $2 billion annually from medical device makers. What you will pay depends on your share of medical device sales in the U.S. If you sell 10% of the medical devices in the U.S., you pay 10% multiplied by $2 billion, or $200,000,000. Forget R&D?
