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.

  • An incomplete report on payments to doctors from drug companies [Letter]

    It actually doesn't do much good to head up an article about payments to doctors by telling readers that a doctor invented a great new device and the company sent him a check for royalties ("Payments to doctors from drug companies, device makers revealed," Oct. 4).

    How can Ehrlich relish suffering of others?

    It saddens me to see the former congressman and governor of Maryland salivating with anticipation at the thought of depriving millions of Americans of decent health insurance by rolling back the Affordable Care Act ("Obamacare is a varsity stinker," Nov. 23).

    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...

    Who are Gov. Martin O'Malley and Attorney General Doug Gansler trying to kid? The reason potential litigation over the flawed rollout of Maryland's health exchange is being postponed is the upcoming election. They are deeply afraid of what Noridian is going to claim about Lt. Gov. Anthony...

    You have published several articles recently in support of Obamacare but have chosen to ignore the news of how this hoax was enacted through deception, fraud, misrepresentation of material facts and outright lies ("Who are you calling stupid?" Nov. 14)!

    Obamacare: Beyond the website

    While it's too early to declare the new Maryland health insurance exchange website a complete success, its largely smooth launch this week offers the prospect that this open enrollment period will be focused less on the technology and more on ensuring Marylanders are getting access to high...
