Letter to the Editor
Tuesday, March 25, 2014, 9:00 p.m.


Re. the letter “Bargain for region” (March 21) from Clifford Schoff: I have a few things to tell him.

He must think President Obama is the best thing that ever happened to this country. The Affordable Care Act is a travesty; it has not lived up to the hype. Most of those signing up are people who lost their health insurance.

As for it being affordable, here's my horror story: As a disabled Vietnam veteran, my VA disability is tax exempt, but it is counted toward my wife's health insurance premium. She has a pre-existing condition, so health insurance would cost her almost $400 a month and she is unemployed. That's affordable?

Obama has done nothing for this country. I believe ObamaCare should and will be tossed out after our joke of a president is finally out of office.

If you believe otherwise, then you are part of what is turning the United States into the laughingstock of the world.
