Sunday, July 21, 2013Representative Ted Yoho511 Cannon House Office BuildingWashington, D.C. 20515Dear Representative Yoho:I read your July 17, 2013 letter to Senator Harry Reid regarding Obamacare. Thanks for sharing.I agree with your assertion that there is a critical need for real healthcare reforms in this country that will improveaccess to affordable health insurance, lower the unsustainable rate of health care cost growth, and will createincentives for health care providers to offer more cost effective care. You rightly said the Affordable Care Act (ACA)
does “none of this.”
I understand the neessity for professional decorum and making nice when communicating with other members of Congress. However, I disagree
with your assertion that “The President, his allies” and Mr. Reed “only had the bestintentions.”
“Medicine is the keystone of the arch of socialism” and “The goal of socialism is communism.”
Obamacare is Marxism/Communism. I would not have hesitated to make this point. The truth after all, is the truth.You correctly pointed out:The ACA promised a reduction in premiums by $2,000.The president promised that those who liked their insurance could keep it.That 7 million people are expected to lose their employer based health insurance.The House Energy Commission found that premiums will increase 145-189%.Florida reports that Obamacare will reduce private sector employment because business owners areunable to expand due to the heavy burden of the cost of compliance.Obamacare perpetuates a system of higher taxes and heavier reliance on welfare.It punishes the self-reliant individual and business owners while rewarding the person who relies ongovernment.This is not the idea our founding fathers had in mind when they crafted the Constitution.He often charges the House of Representatives with wasting time by passing so many repeals of Obamacare.These repeals are a clear mandate from the people who elected their congressional representatives.However, your letter did not firmly address the fact that:Healthcare is an individual responsibility and a state right, if government involvement is necessary.The federal law mandating businesses provide a health care benefit to its workers is unconstitutional.
