Thanks, but no thanks to Obamacare plan

To the editor:

Every disaster has its moment of clarity. Just recently, Obamacare, for all the world to see, caused hundreds of thousands of insurance cancellation letters to be sent to people who have been assured a dozen times by the president that "if you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan."

Then President Obama apologized to the American people who are losing their health insurance policies under the Affordable Care Act. Obama's repeated: "Keep your coverage" promise was false.

So the law designed to cover the uninsured is now throwing out far more people from their insurance than it can possibly be signing up on the nonfunctioning insurance exchange.

Most of the 19 million people with individual insurance will have to find new and likely more expensive coverage. And that does not cover additional millions who are sure to lose their employer provided coverage. That's a lot of people.

So much for the "mea culpas." One must realize that the Affordable Care Act is President Obama's idea of federally regulated and standardized national health insurance. And when you find your present policy canceled and your new policy's premium and deductible increased, you might say "thanks, but no thanks."
