To the Editor:
Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, one of Obamacare’s chief architects and staunchest supporters, is also the only top Congressional leader to exempt some of his staff from having to buy insurance on the exchange. That is against the law.
President Obama has delayed, for over a year, big unions, corporations and others from the health care law requirements that would result in large increases in their policy costs or being dropped altogether. That is also illegal; he cannot just decide not to enforce the law.
The law passed in 2010, to be enacted in 2014, is for all of us, like it or not. The obvious question: if this new law was so great, then why exempt some and postpone it for others?
I believe the postponement is to put it out of the minds of the voter until after the November 2014 elections. They don’t want us to find out how bad the sticker shock is going to be before we vote. Their angry constituents might show their dislike at the polls. The Democrats in Congress are doing this to get re-elected. That’s dishonest and despicable.
