THE PEOPLE SPEAK — The solution isn’t Obamacare

Obamacare does not care for your well-being.  It makes health care more difficult for all and more costly too.

Doctors are leaving the Medicare system and making it more difficult for the poor to get services.  

The rich will continue to get best medical care available, and they will get the first service.

Obamacare is not affordable for the nation.  The Medicare system is broken, fraud is a major cost, and fighting that fraud is short of manpower and funding. Also, many additional people will have to be hired to manage the system. Just setting up the web site has already cost many millions of dollars for the American people.

Think what the addition of millions of people to Medicare and Medicaid will bring. The present system is overloaded now.  

It is well-known fact that people who have health insurance paid by others will go to the doctors more often. Many medical events would respond to the old adage “Take an aspirin and call me tomorrow.”

There are better solutions to health care than Obamacare.
