To the editor:
Bob Atkinson's letter of Sept. 29 ("Looking to take control") reveals the skill level of liberal criticism - low or non-existent. He states no facts or answers legitimate questions such as: If Obumacare is so great, why doesn't President Barack Obama sign up for it? Why aren't Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Pinocchio U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., at the front of the line? Can anyone name one local liberal politician running on the Obumacare platform?
The writer's rage and lack of political knowledge is apparent by the clown references he made. He tried to misdirect the argument with nonsense, but we see through his pitiful attempt. I thought the illuminati from across the Ohio was beyond following idiots blindly. I was wrong. Let's deal with something that valley amigos know nothing about: Facts.
Obuma exempted big business from initiating Obamacare for one year. Why is the individual mandated to participate on Jan. 1? Please explain how Obama can unilaterally change a law that was passed by Congress, upheld by the Supreme Court and he signed? He has changed his law 17 times to accommodate unions, change times of mandates and more. How can he just change a law without congressional approval? Where's the $67 million the IRS misplaced for Obamacare's slush fund? It reads in Section 14 that "navigators should not steal people's identification," yet, there is no background check and no penalty if they do steal your identification. Stupid. Thousands who signed up received sticker shock, learning they have a $5,000 or $6,000 deductible and must pay 30 percent of any hospital bill.
Didn't our leader draw a red line about Syria? Did Secretary of State John Kerry really say we'll have just a teensy-weensy attack on Syria? Didn't Obama promise to get to the bottom of the IRS scandal because this action will not be tolerated? Wasn't he going to bring the perpetrators of Benghazi to justice? Why did he and Kerry sign the UN gun control treaty without publicity? Obama said he won't have one lobbyist working in the White House. He didn't lie: there are 119. American families are barred from visiting our White House. He sent guards to the World War II Memorial (privately funded) to bar veterans from entering. The House of Representatives passed a bill to open the memorial and national parks, but the demented Reid won't allow the Senate to vote on it. Disgraceful. He doesn't care about Americans, just political power.
I wonder if Obama and the Iranian president prayed to Allah before they started their conversation? Obama told him "you better not make an atomic bomb or I'll send Kerry to the UN to protest." Wow.
All the liberals are getting their wish. Full-time employment is a thing of the past - part-time is where it's at. Unions enjoy. To liberals who pound their chests crowing Obamacare is the law of the land, live with it, I reply: the Second Amendment to the Constitution is the law of the land - live with.
