To the editor:
Local League of Women Voters leaders clearly enunciate the “progressive” take on life. Having “health insurance” with the quality and affordability you like isn’t really insurance (Public Forum, Nov. 5). The public is ill-informed and they will tell you what real insurance is and what you should pay for it.
For sure, those leaders immediately dropped their “faux” insurance for Affordable Care Act coverage, gladly paid the increases for coverage and deductibles they don’t need, and accepted the reduced networks available. Any increased wait periods to see a doctor are no big deal for them. Who knows, maybe they are getting big subsidies (from borrowed money) to pay for it all.
The bottom line: They know what’s good for you; you don’t. Whether it’s the failed “Cash for Clunkers” costing $1.4 million per job created, the bailout of GM and Chrysler costing over $160,000 per job “saved,” ACA costing the taxpayer at least $600 million for a broken website and who knows how much more, or “Common Core” to “standardize” education, progressives believe that they have the right, nay, the obligation to force you to do things their way.
Just overlook the word “law” in ACA. It’s merely a guideline that they can change when it’s not convenient.
