Letter: Poor Prognosis for Obamacare

To the Editor:

Obamacare is unraveling before our eyes. First, the employer mandate was suspended until 2015. Among other things, this will enable some people without health insurance to claim they have it and thus avoid paying a penalty for noncompliance. Now it’s being reported that the government will use the honor system to evaluate the eligibility of people requesting federal subsidies for their health insurance. In other words, the government will take it at their word that they are entitled to a government subsidy, opening the door to massive fraud.

Let’s all remember that Obamacare was and continues to be opposed by a majority of the American people and was rammed into law by the Democrats on a purely partisan basis.
