Benefits will follow Obamacare

December 29, 2013
The Review

Dear Editor:

Just this week, two county and municipal entities found out the insurance costs did not go up as predicted by the conservative Republicans and their Tea Party buddies.

I've stated more than once that the aim of it is in its name, "Affordable Health Care," and the people who yelled the loudest didn't have a clue what it was about, just another chance to slam the president.

Well, now that the problems more than likely caused by conservative hackers are being ironed out, it truly is a good law. Lisbon saved $15,000 on the very first policy and Buckeye Water saved $50,000. The sad part is that these people think they are geniuses and thought this strategy up by themselves.

The same dire predictions were made in the 1930s when FDR started Social Security. It only turned out to be the best piece of legislation to ever come out of Washington. With this, any savings and a pension, people could stay in their homes and not have to move in with the children. It was good for the economy because it allowed them to maintain their properties and buy products to buoy the economy. The American economy has benefitted many times over any costs for this great law, both conservative and liberal.

I feel that it will be surpassed by Obamacare's benefits, but the lies will persist for years to come. Please remember who shouted the loudest and told the biggest whoppers the next time you go to the polls.

Also, I have not and will not read the law in its present form because it has to be fine tuned by the case law and it may take 20, 30 or more years to get it right, but I do not believe that in America the old and the poor will go without, and even the conservatives will jump on that bandwagon.
