The recent letter "Objection to ACA is only about Obama" requires a response.
It would appear the writer is able to sum up the problem with the ACA, a huge and complicated program, very easily for us by stating, "It is only about Obama."
Whew, thank you: Finally, it is not George Bush's fault.
Hope and change is working.
It is clear the writer is a fan of Nancy Pelosi. She, too, believes "We have to pass this [health care] bill so that you can find out what is in it."
I compare that to digging to the bottom of a Cracker Jack box to claim your prize only to find crumbs of popcorn.
Elizabeth Shade then tells us her "close" friends recently had a $500 reduction in their monthly insurance premiums. Applause to them for being able to access the Internet site.
I am sure the two million plus who have been dropped by their providers due to the ACA are very happy for Shade's friends.
Unfortunately, what these two million plus people remember is, according to Obama, "I just want to be completely clear about this; I keep saying this but somehow folks aren't listening. If you like your health care plan, you keep your health care plan. Nobody is going to force you to leave your health care plan."
Yes, it is only about Obama.
Now, as far as the many more overwhelming successes, Shade is correct: I am still searching.
Dec. 4, 2013: A new Harvard poll finds only 22 percent of Americans 18 to 29 years old plan to sign up for Obamacare and Obama's approval ratings have dropped to his lowest level, 39.8 percent. These are the naysayers the writer would like to "be gone."
On the campaign trail, President Obama vowed to pull all American troops out of Afghanistan by the end of 2014.
The U.S.-Afghanistan deal keeps troop presence through 2024, a deal struck by Secretary of State John Kerry. Kerry was appointed by this administration and works for Obama. So my question would be: Which dirty little lie that has been told so many times is Shade referring to?
It is only about Obama, and yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.
