To the Editor:

There has been a lot about “Obamacare” lately, mostly rather heated. Why can’t people see the humor in this?

I was talking to a government employee in early October about this. Since he was home due to the shutdown, he decided to check the status of his health care policy for the coming year.

He logged on to the government website and found his cost had doubled for the coming year. But not to worry. The government pays for about two-thirds of this.

But wait. There is more. Further research brought up the fact the government is cutting its share in half! This doubles his cost. Don’t think that is funny?

Obamacare was passed by a Democratic Congress and signed into law by a Democratic president. Still don’t see the humor?

Government employees are around 90 percent Democrats.

There is an election coming up next year and the Democrats will be trying to spin this to be on account of the evil Republicans. That should be hilarious.

This is not the same democrats as were during President Kennedy's time....These are the "Social Democrats" that existed during the Cold war. After they ruined economies in Communist Europe, they moved over here after President Clinton announced "we won"... sound familiar in recent times? That was some 23 + years ago and I would bet that those in their mid 40's and younger could not tell you the difference between those social democrats from then to the democrats in this country today. What is happening to the United States today is the changeover that they wanted all along, albeit sneeking in the back door with so much give aways, that no wonder the Czar in Chief is always smiling...and it seems he only smiles when he lies.
Makes me think, that one day, they will go and round up people like me and that would be the last anyone hears from me. Really not to far back in time, that that is what the Nazis and Communists did.


Fran is right in what she says about the Nazis and Communist, Plus if you have been a soldier and are known to be willing to fight, you weren't left at ease very long.

I’m laughing at them; I have some coworkers that have voted for him twice. I ask them about the ACA and you will hear, “He’s trying to help people” they don’t have clue about it. Now I tell them, “I told you so.” They’re still clueless.


The blind leading the blind. Unfortunatly he is only helping himself and they can't see it. He is out for himself and thats all. God help us.

The humor being, the democrats have allowed a man and a political party they themselves put into power, to screw over them, to make them into fools, and to talk them into drinking the kool aid willingly by the gallons.
And they were even foolish enough, to argue the point for this group to others.
Even though, all the warning signs were there and have been for years. That this political group aren't to be trusted.

Even when 'the man' , made them into liars by saying,
No, he didn't say they could keep their doctors or insurance plans if they wanted,
even though the democrats, the same as republicans knew that's what they had been told and promised .

Now when its seem that the democrats have even screwed themselves along with any family member, friend, or acquaintance they might have feelings for ,some of them will still not be strong enough to admit ,they really screwed up big time when they insisted the democratic party have their way and take over the health of the entire country.
The democrats who have any Honor must realize, they have been duped by con artist's, who are more dangerous then any 2nd rate con artist could ever be,
This group holds your future in the palms of their hands.


Have you ever watched TV and they ask a democrat questions about the healthcare lies and about jobs and Detroit and they have this spiel that they start spouting and just keep going even when the host asks a question? It shows that they are all rehearsed and they can't stop cause they don't know what else to say and they would have to start all over again. They are a bunch of puppets. But people, we need to wake up and start paying attention to what is going on. I hate it when people say, my one vote doesn't count, cause it does, it adds up with the other people that say that and you all vote.
