Letter: Nothing is free

Posted

What one critic of the Republican healthcare plan didn't say in last week's letter to the editor is that she wants socialized medicine. What she and others don't seem to know is that single payer health insurance will cost all working Americans in higher taxes. Nothing is free. But Obamacare did a great job of offering free health care to some, at the expense of others. Now, if Congress tries to fix health insurance, those who unreservedly received Medicaid will scream unfair!

The writer did make one good point. This country was not created for the rich. It was created so that, with hard work an an entrepreneurial spirit, you could become rich. I say no to Trumpcare because it doesn't offer choice, competition, USA's or tort reform. Rand Paul had some ideas that are not being listened to because they would mean getting rid of the freebies in Obamacare. We need to repeal the ACA and replace it with several small bills that address specific areas and quit trying to make everything comprehensive.
