LETTER: Good riddance to Obamacare

It’s no wonder the price of health insurance keeps going up.

I believe that Obama wanted to make as many people as possible dependent on the federal government so they could keep winning elections. It seems dependency is a Democrat principal.

The voters have stopped this progression to Socialism or worse with the election of Donald Trump. During the Obama administration they have politicized the IRS, the Justice Department, and the FBI. We need some real law and order that puts us once again on an even keel, and we can enforce laws based on the truth or falsehood of the case not the ethnic stature of the offender.

Obamacare has so many problems it is hard to see which one is the worst. Because college graduates couldn’t find jobs under the Obama administration, they decided the young people could stay on their parents policy until they are 26. I think most of them would have preferred to get a job and take care of their own health coverage.

This stupid law nearly destroyed the health insurance in this country, covered a lot of people many on Medicaid, and forced many others to buy insurance of face a fine if they didn’t. With competition and a realistic policy of coverage, the benefits will be felt by all of us. The cost will go down, competition will once again exist and even people in Grays Harbor County can get coverage.
