What a wonderful, if hypocritical and misleading, opinion by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who continues to be as truthful and upfront with the American people as her boss is about Benghazi ("Health care reform is cutting costs, improving care," March 20). Some of the more egregious prevarications that are now becoming evident and seeing the light of day:
If you like your doctor, you can keep him. By driving your doctor out of practice or out of Medicare, he'll not be there for you to keep.
If you like your health plan, you can keep it. At least 7 Million Americans will lose their health care, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
A firm pledge that no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Obamacare has at least 20 new taxes on every kind of device and research guaranteed to stifle innovation and increase the cost of durable goods, etc.
Obamacare will cut the cost of premiums by $2,500 a year. Hold on to your wallet. The estimated cost, by the IRS of all, people of the least expensive government-sanctioned health care plan for the typical family of four will be $20,000. Insurance company estimates are higher, maybe double.
Obamacare will create 4 million jobs. Real unemployment remains at 15 percent, real Americans are struggling and the CBO says that Obamacare will destroy at least 800,000 jobs, and the taxes will drive more overseas.
No person who cares would institute the laws and regulations that President Obama has passed, enforce this unworkable health care law, overspend our country into an economy destroying deficit and keep unemployment at a high rate. So many things make this the biggest lie of all.
A front page article on the same day that Ms. Sebelius' op-ed ran says that Obamacare will drive poor and indigent children out of dental care services! Perhaps Mrs. Sebelius and the Sun's editors should take a turn at telling the truth instead of parroting the administration's liberal lies. I won't hold my breath.
