Letter about Obama Care

Posted in All Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

I am amazed at all the praise that Obama Care gets, when in reality it hurts people like me. You know. The little people it promised to help.

Because of Obama Care I lost my insurance. I’m single with no wife or kids. I believed the bull the President promised us when he said we would not lose our insurance or doctors. Well I lost because of it.

I went on the MNSure website to sign up. I was shocked that the same coverage that I had would now cost me over $300 more per month. I think it’s rather deceitful to tell us how many people MNSure has helped get insurance. In the state of Minnesota you could always get insurance. Just pay for it yourself instead of making someone else pay for it. And insurance was always available to those who couldn’t afford it through what was called M.A. Where are the facts for people like me who lost insurance and can’t afford to get it back all because of Obama Care?

I guess I will have to pay the fine and just roll the dice hoping I don’t need medical services. Getting everyone covered. Yeah, right. I hope the IRS at least looks to see that I made a good faith effort in trying to purchase insurance but stopped when the price was revealed.

I’m not alone. A woman where I work is in the same position. I want to thank each and every person fighting this stupid Obama Care. You are actually fighting for the little person like me and my coworker.
