Obamacare only reducing liberties

Success - Article sent! close

I don't understand support for Obamacare. This law was passed by a Congress that didn't even know what they were voting for. (Don't you expect more from your representative than this?) And more than two years later we still don't understand it.

When we can accomplish the goals of full coverage for pre-existing conditions and more competition for your business by selling health insurance policies across state lines, why support this intrusion into our lives? Do you like the hiring of more IRS agents to review your income tax returns for compliance with this law? By the way, what happened to all of that Social Security money that we've paid to keep Social Security financially solvent for ourselves and future generations? Oh, it's already spent!

And you want to give this same government even more power? Let's put government back in its rightful place as our servant to protect our freedoms and liberties, not as the master that will take those freedoms and liberties away.
