Letter to the Editor
Tuesday, Aug. 20, 2013, 9:00 p.m.

Every day, another part of ObamaCare crashes.

The unions are fighting it, the employers are fighting it, individuals never wanted it in the first place and now are the only ones who have to comply in 2014.

Our all-knowing, all-seeing representatives, Democrat and Republican, are exempt from it and now their aides will be subsidized to get it — which, under the law, is not legal. So what are we going to be left with?

A 2,700-page law nobody wanted in the first place, thousands of new IRS agents to make damn sure you get it or pay not to, over a hundred new agencies to administer it and, most importantly, the most expensive government program ever!

Small businesses will have more paperwork to comply with and other businesses will simply stop covering their employees.

One major health-care employer announced a severe cutback in coverage due to ObamaCare. Guess who gets to pay for it? You, your kids, their kids, and their kids, and their kids.

Once it is on the books, it is impossible to get rid of. What we are left with is another government boondoggle that will be a total failure.

Don't you all think we need a change of command from the top down? We could start with the midterm elections in 2014.
