Prosecute Wall Street — and the people who brought us Obamacare [Letter]

Taking your theme of criminal prosecution for the rip-off artists of the financial services industry a step further, we should also appoint an independent prosecutor for the snake oil salesmen in the executive branch who foisted the fraudulent Affordable Care Act on an unwitting American public ("JPMorgan's money is not enough," Nov. 19).

Indeed, while the banking executives from the institutions deemed "too big to fail" — who bear much of the responsibility for the 2008 financial meltdown — deserve to be frog-walked from their plush offices, the same holds true for the occupants of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Any public company involved in a scheme resembling that of Obamacare would be facing massive criminal charges.

    Health exchange still a hassle

    I found The Sun's editorial, "Beyond the website" (Nov. 23), about how well the new-and-improved Maryland Health Connection had launched to be ironic and not in a good way. Perhaps you should have looked beyond the health insurance website itself to see if the system really had been improved...
