In response to Jim Eddy's letter to editor published on July 24th. It seems that Mr. Eddy and I agree on nothing when it comes to Obamacare. I will say however that he certainly knows how to spell my name!
The suggestion that Republicans want to take people off of insurance roles whether it be the elderly, newborn or students is simply absurd. We want nothing of the kind, but we under no circumstances want government dictating what we will and will not do regarding our healthcare or anything else for that matter.
Best Left to the Private Sector
The laundry list of white house talking points that Mr. Eddy points out are worn out. They are old news. Healthcare solutions are best left to the private sector and/or to individual states.
No, government is not the answer to anything related to healthcare. In fact, they are most likely the problem and Obamacare will only make it worse.
If Obamacare is such a wonderful thing, why are so many doctors considering dropping medicine as a profession? Why were 16000 new IRS agents hired to "enforce" Obamacare? Why did Congress "exempt" itself from participation in Obamacare?
Cause for Concern?
I sense bit of insecurity in the words Mr. Eddy opined in his letter. Perhaps he should be concerned. Due to attendance at recent Grays Harbor Republican Central Committee meetings, we will need another room soon. Another, like in bigger! We are bursting at the seams!
And since Mr. Eddy brought it up, did you know that Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin won the recall election by a larger margin (7%) than the general election (5.5%) when he was originally elected? While I agree that Scott Walker does not know everything, in this case he knows more than Mr. Eddy as do the people of Wisconsin!
