Lawmakers not representing people

Success - Article sent! close

Our representatives have voted to "kick the can" down the road, run up more debt and do nothing to reduce spending.

Every poll that was taken over the past several months, indicated the majority of those polled, wanted the debt reduced, Obamacare delayed so that people would have a better understanding of the plan and reduce spending. Evidently the people we send to Washington do not represent the people that send them there.

Those representatives that voted against the bill were mostly associated with the "Tea Party" and highly criticized in the press but at least they represented the voters that sent them there. It will be interesting to see how many more times the "can" is kicked down the road before a budget is signed into law.

As far as Obamacare which has turned into one of the most divisive programs in my life time, actually has some good benefits, such as, people with preconditions cannot be refused insurance and children can stay on their parents plan until age 27. On the other hand it does infringe on religious freedom which has led to many lawsuits and will continue to be challenged.

It is amazing how a program to provide insurance for 1 percent of the population has turned into such a train wreck.

I just received my insurance information for 2014 and my cost is going to increase by $2,000 if I want to continue with the same program. People have no idea how insurance cost will continue to rise and the effect on selection of doctors, hospitals and services.

God bless America.
