Repeal Obamacare

The election results at the national level in November underscored the fact that people do not want government encroaching upon their individual freedoms. One of the most personal aspects of a person's life is their decision regarding their health care needs. President Obama's health care legislation compromised fundamental constitutional rights of citizens as well increase the size of federal government. The U.S. House's vote to repeal Obamacare was a dramatic move to swing the pendulum back to common sense public policy in Washington.

More questions than answers

Ms. Bette Holland's (Democratic Party Co-Chair) Letter to the Editor touts the wonders of Obamacare, while denigrating attempts to repeal it by people who were elected to do that very thing. As facts in Obamacare slowly ooze out, I shudder as I recall Nancy Pelosi's comment, "we have to pass the bill to know what's in the bill."
