Obama’s statement about keeping your health plan not true

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.

Can I assume that you approve of a president lying if he or she does it for our own good? Perhaps I should just leave sarcasm alone.

But I like throwing my hard earned cash at the big insurers. It helps my family stay well below the national poverty line and keeps us frugal … “Dinner’s ready, kids. Whose turn is it to eat?” And when I’m denied that life-saving procedure, my children will only benefit from my premature middle-aged death … “I’m sure glad Dad’s finally dead. Now we can split his share of dinner.”
