Health reform costs endanger the nation

NEW CASTLE — Editor, The News:

According to John Adams, in 1826, “There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by the sword. The other is by debt.”

The progressives cannot use the sword, but they can bankrupt this country. Is that the objective of the progressives and this administration?

You must not forget that President Obama was very clear in stating that Obamacare costs were not a tax. Really? Then, the question arises, why did the Supreme Court rule that it was?

Did Obama, in his infinite wisdom, know that this would be the final result by the Supreme Court, enabling him to lie that he would not place a tax increase on middle America? The voters can decide in November if he lied on this subject.

This Obamataxcare program will cost trillions of dollars if it is not repealed by a new president. Did you know that this Obamataxcare program will create a multibillion-dollar “slush fund” to be spent solely by federal bureaucrats for such things as bike paths?

This plan also expands the definition of “low-income” to make 63 percent of non-elderly Americans eligible for “low-income” subsidized insurance. It also precludes poor individuals from having a choice of health care plans by automatically dumping them in the Medicaid program.

Abraham Lincoln said this: “You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.” Is this the objective of this administration?

This election is the most important election in our lifetime. The Supreme Court will not do the job of the voter, as demonstrated on June 28. Will we do our duty in November? Our Republic hangs in the balance of our voting decisions.
