Letter to the Editor
President Obama says, “If you like your health care plan you can keep it.” This statement is not true. When health care reform passes you will no longer be able to buy the kind of health insurance you have now. For example, if the plan you have now excludes coverage for preexisting conditions, that will go away. If they have a cap on what they will pay out if you are really sick, that will go away. If they want to drop you when you are sick or raise your rates so you can’t afford it, that will go away as well. You will no longer be denied life saving procedures by insurance company death panels like you have now.
So when Obama says that you can keep your health plan, don’t believe him. He’s lying to you. He’s going to force you to get a better plan for less money whether you like it or not.
