Watch the full-time jobs disappear

  • Article
text size: AAA

Dear Senators Durbin and Kirk,

The so called Affordable Care Act has proved to date to be ill conceived, underforecasted and wrought with many unintended consequences that are causing great harm to Americans financially, including creating more part-time instead of full-time jobs. Not sure how these could have been avoided -- maybe reading and assessing the consequences before voting on the document would have been a good place to start.

At any rate, I'm writing to encourage you to support the House budget spending plan to defund the ACA by removing it from the budget process. Doing so would do the following:

1. Stop the unintended consequences and deep fear that are causing full-time jobs to evaporate.

2. Provide for the needed time to come up with modifications to the ACA that would be wholesome and direct for improving the health care delivery system in the U.S. Key to this would be the true affordability of the future plan, not just in its title but for real; a novel idea for ensuring transparency.

3. The new modifications should include that all governmental employees and yes, even you, the elected federal staff, should be included in the plan to ensure your authenticity in wanting to be a part of the all-inclusive good plan.

I hope you will support these actions so that I can in good conscious vote for you in the future.
