Letters to the editor, August 14

Defund Obamacare

I do not know where Mr. DeGiulio [DRC, Aug. 2] receives his information as he is sadly misinformed. Obama’s jobs policy created 953,000 jobs for 2013 with 731,000 being part time.

Twenty-one million young people are still living with their parents because they can’t afford to live on their own. The IRS chief and his people want to keep their plan.

In a meeting with Obama, Democratic senators complained that they and their staff could not afford Obamacare. You, dear reader, are going to pay 75 percent of their premiums.

The AFL-CIO and other large unions want nothing to do with Obamacare. Max Baucus, Democratic senator and leading writer of Obamacare, calls it a train wreck.

A decision by U.S. Health and Human Services to deny help to a young girl needing a lung transplant was overturned by a judge and the young girl is doing well. Any program that is repudiated by Congress should not be forced on the public.

The only immigration bill that should be passed is to secure the border and enforce the laws already written. How many unskilled workers who speak no English will find employment?

The Republicans appear to be powerless to stop anything the Democrats want. I would appreciate the Republican leadership showing unified resolve in defunding Obamacare, which they can do.

Fred Carter, Sanger
