Obamacare apology is not enough


Bluefield Daily Telegraph

— — Obamacare is a fight we should not have started and is causing numerous Americans to lose their coverage on health insurance plans. Obamacare is causing trouble with private health insurance companies by taxing the customers of the private health insurance because they are not using Obamacare. How is just a simple apology going to help Americans to get their coverage back?

In recent days, focus has intensified on the president’s promise that Americans who liked their insurance coverage would be able to keep it. He repeated the line often, both as the bill was being debated in Congress and after it was signed into law, but the health care law itself made that promise almost impossible to keep. How will Obama keep his promise?

A simple, half-hearted apology does not set well with most people. The health care law is flawed in countless ways and is a waste of time and money in which both could go to greater cause. Obamacare should be repealed and would be in a preferred situation.
