Obamacare continues to fail [Letter]

Millions of Americans who have lost health insurance they wanted to keep and were forced to pay more for less can now be counted among the insured ("Obamacare hurts more than helps," March 16).

In the meantime, the White House site still makes the claim that "if you like your plan you can keep it and you don't have to change a thing due to the health care law." This turned out to be a Big Lie by the Obama administration.

Valerie Jarrett tweeted, "Fact: Nothing in Obamacare forces people out of their health plans. No change is required unless insurance companies change existing plans." This is just another fairy tale and big lie from the White House

An NBC News web site has ran a story saying that the Obama administration knew three years in advance that there would be millions who would not be permitted to keep their insurance. This is another great deception and flat out lie by the liberal Obama administration.

President Barack Obama repeatedly assured Americans that after the Affordable Care Act became law, people who liked their health insurance would be able to keep it.

Not so as now millions of Americans are getting or are about to get cancellation letters for their health insurance under Obamacare. It now has been estimated 50 to 75 percent of the 14 million consumers who buy their insurance individually can expect to receive a "cancellation" letter or the equivalent over the next year because their existing policies don't meet the standards mandated by the new health care law.

The only solution out of this mess called Obamacare is to totally repeal it and throw it out as one of the worst legislation passed in the past half-century. Obamacare is not for America.
