I recently read a letter in the Daily Herald from a reader praising the work of Congressman Brad Schneider. It left me shaking my head in disbelief. Though he wasn't there when there when the law was originally passed, Brad Schneider has jumped on the bandwagon to support arguably one of the worst pieces of legislation ever enacted by our government: Obamacare.
Due to rising health care costs for employees, employers have scaled back hiring, which is contributing to higher unemployment. Due to higher insurance premiums and deductibles, consumers are cutting back on spending, which is causing a drag on the economy.
Doctors aren't going to get paid as much, so they are leaving the general practice area. People are having their insurance coverage canceled and they can't get access to new insurance due to the incompetence of the people implementing the Healthcare.gov website. Overall, Obamacare has been a total disaster.
The Republicans' attempts to repeal this law have been thwarted by "loyal lemmings" like Brad Schneider. It's clear that Mr. Schneider's loyalties are with the power brokers in Washington and not the people who elected him. It's time for the voters to start voting for people who will serve them and not the Washington bureaucrats. Any politician who supports Obamacare should be swept out of office. We can start with Brad Schneider.
