To the Editor:

The rollout of Healthcare.gov has been a complete disaster. Stories of the site malfunctioning are being reported everywhere. Regular Americans are having extreme difficulty signing up.

Liberals like Sen. Joe Manchin and entertainer John Stewart (“The Daily Show”) think a delay of the individual mandate would be a good idea.

Some Obama supporters are beginning to face increased costs for health care.

Health care companies are laying off Medicare doctors in droves. For instance, United HealthCare just fired thousands of Medicare Advantage doctors. That means less supply of care.

Congress exempted itself from Obama-Care. Obama delayed the mandate for big business. Why shouldn’t the mandate be delayed for all of the American people?

Delaying the individual mandate is the only “fair” option. It’s a policy both liberals and conservatives should support.

    The government does not have the power to rewrite legislation without the approval of congress.

    The government does not have the power to ignore these rules, nor decide to give itself these powers.

    The affordable care act is unconstitutional.

    Bubba according to the Supreme Court ACA is constitutional they ruled it as a tax. So yes IRS does have the right to steal our monies/properties. We need to start calling ourselves Comrades the USSR won by the idiots that voted for this socialist. Republicans today are DemocRAT lite. Talk to you later Comrade Bubba—Power to the State—Death to America.

    The government does not have the power to direct what I will do with my private property, to wit: my income. The government does not have the power to direct me to buy anything. The government does not have the power to levy fines without due process. The government does not have the power to rewrite legislation without the approval of congress. The government does not have the power to ignore these rules, nor decide to give itself these powers.

    The affordable care act is unconstitutional.

    It should be delayed permanently, and those responsible for its implementation arrested.
