Stick to the facts

Mr. Henrichs, (Your Views, Oct. 17) I see that you didn’t like my article. Even though it is based on facts.

There is all kinds of information pertaining to FACTS about Obamacare. It was set up to make sure as many people as possible would have healthcare.

Anyone that has insurance, does not have to sign up for Obamacare. People on Medicare, Medicaid or employer healthcare are not subject to Obamacare. The only stipulation was it had to be as good an cost-effective as Obamacare.

Obamacare was set up for the poor, uninsured, and under-insured. Only greedy corporations are doing everything they can to stop it, even though it hurts their employees.

If Republicans are so sure this is a bad law, why don’t they just let it fall on it face? Then they can sit back and have the last laugh.

As far as lying, (which they all do) Republicans for some reason choose to do it more. It’s like they don’t know they’ve been recorded somewhere. An example was Ted Cruz at the memorials. He knew damn well who shut down this government, yet he stood there and lied to those vets, saying the president did it.

As far as the Republicans being conservative ... they just wasted $24 billion dollars through this shutdown that the American people could not afford.

Fight the wheel enemy

A company that suggested that doctors prescribe electric wheelchairs to some patients whether they need it or not, has filed bankruptcy.

No ... it wasn’t some union’s demand or some moron bragging in the newspaper he got paid while sleeping on his job, but greedy and incompetent CEOs!

The Feds put a stop to that! Wonder if they will investigate these doctors who prescribed it at taxpayers expense?
