Government Shutdown

Who wants the government shutdown to happen? The Republicans say the President wants it to make his political competitors look bad. The Democrats say the Republicans want to shut it down making the President look bad.  Which ever one is right, we are still in trouble.

Our growth continues to limp along. Large companies are holding on to their money because they refuse to spend it on new government regulations and Obama care. Certain medical facilities are shutting down because they cannot help their patients and pay their staff under Obama care.The world-renowned Cleveland Clinic said on Wednesday it would cut jobs and slash five to six percent of its $6 billion annual budget to prepare for President Barack Obama’s health reforms.

More people than ever are on food stamps. They can’t find jobs. There are fewer and fewer career type positions available and if one is looking for work he will find that there are only part-time positions without benefits. I know two young women who are living with their parents and working three part-time jobs because they cannot find fulltime work. They are both engineers.  Yet everyone disagrees on the solution.

Is a Detroit economy where we are headed? Government spending is greater than the income coming in. If that doesn’t change, we too are headed for bankruptcy, no jobs, no services, no healthcare and no retirement.

Meanwhile, the large businesses, the politicians and the social hyenas continue to fight while not looking at our real problems.

Affordable Care Act

The Congressional Budget Office estimates that 7 million Americans will lose their coverage because of Obamacare. North Carolina Congressman Pittenger reports that Blue Cross Blue Shield has announced a 284 % increase for some North Carolina insurance premiums due to Obamacare. Small business owners are concerned that costly Obamacare regulations will drive them out of business. So can someone explain the word affordable in Affordable Care Act?  

I am concerned for two reasons: first most of us can not afford a 284 percent increase on middle income or retirement income.  Secondly I do not want federal help.  I understand that if you make a certain amount of money you will be able to receive entitlements from the government to assist in paying these steep premiums. In my opinion, it is another way for the government to control us. The government takes more and more control of our lives each day. Our government tells us what we can eat, how we should protect ourselves, what kind of healthcare we are allowed to have, and even legislates our morality.

If healthcare for the uninsured is something we need, let’s start over with a plan that does not hurt more people than it helps. Please research the information on Obamacare and send your congressman an email or letter in support of the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

As an American, I do not want the federal supplement. I started working when I was thirteen. From the beginning I have been independent, working my way through college, starting a career at the bottom of the ladder and living in a small one bedroom apartment using the coffee table for dining.  Many people start out this way. I believe most Americans want an independent society not socialism.

In congress, a legislative bill is being prepared to repeal Obamacare. With all the negative and costly changes that Obamacare has brought us I think this is a good idea. 

If healthcare for the uninsured is something we need, let’s start over with a plan that does not hurt more people than it helps. Research the information on Obamacare and send your congressman an email or letter and support the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
