Having fought two wars for the America I love, I am deeply troubled by its current situation. Our hard-won democracy and freedom are under serious attack by Obamacare. Instead of improving health care, this legislation drives the country toward socialism by expanding an already large class that depends upon government handouts, which buys votes for the incumbent political party.
President Obama and congressional Democrats are betraying the American working people by vastly increasing their debt. The only way Democrats managed to pass the health care bill was by deceptive tactics, payoffs and deals behind closed doors. They used "reconciliation" because they did not have the votes to pass it in the normal way — a violation of established rules. Moreover, they withdrew $535 billion from Medicare to show phony total costs below $1 trillion and increased taxes by $1.5 trillion, thus driving up costs for everyone's medical care.
