I can understand letter writer and nurse Maureen Pizzo’s concerns about health care, being as close to it as she is. However I have to disagree with her on Obamacare. We do not need more than 2,600 pages and the hiring of thousands of costly new future pensioned bureaucrats and IRS agents to improve health care. Hundreds of pages of this bill have nothing to do with health care and everything to do with another government takeover. One article I read highlighted that Romneycare is just 70 pages.
We do not need a massive welfare health-care scam to simply state that you can cannot be denied coverage due to a pre-existing condition. This bill provides little protection and it is absurd to call it affordable.
I will vote for any candidate who promises to repeal it, as it is too big to resolve with fine tuning. The bill also cuts funding to Medicare, the age group that needs medical care the most in future years, to subsidize others, and discourages doctors from taking on new Medicare patients.
I fully agree that we need some health-care reform, however the bloated Obamacare scam is hardly the answer.
