Letter: Liberals are destroying individual freedom through ObamaCare

ObamaCare promised lower premiums, that you can keep your current insurance and you can use your current medical provider.

I know several individuals that have received cancellation notices from their current providers effective Sept. 30. The letter states their current policy does not meet ObamaCare standards. The insurers on the Colorado insurance exchange are charging higher premiums, with higher deductibles and most do not include local physicians that were their choice of medical providers. They do not meet the poverty levels to get subsidies and have to pay almost double to almost duplicate their current coverage.

Why does the government say this is better? The liberals are destroying individual freedom and dictating how we live and die. The rich and the poor are not affected. They either have plenty of money or government subsidies. It’s the lower middle class that is being beaten down and further away from enjoying life with less discretionary income. Remember the most important “thing” in life is money and the government has no concern how they spend other peoples’ money or affect lifestyles.

I was originally for ObamaCare, but now I hope it is repealed.
