My Letter to the Editor-Obama Cares More About Big Business than the American People

I wrote a letter to the editor of the Wisnton-Salem Journal. Here's my letter:

We worked to make sure our Representatives in the House heard us and they did! The House has sent four government spending bills to the Senate. A majority of Americans don't want Obamacare, even the unions don't want it!

Does President Obama care about big business more than he cares about the American people? He delayed the mandate for big business, so why would he and Reid oppose the House bill that gives the American people a one year delay on the individual mandate? Why would the President and Reid oppose making Congress equal under the law and removing congressional exemptions?

Lastly, many Democrats in the Senate have signed on to repealing the medical device tax, so why wouldn't Harry Reid and President Obma support this tax that is killing jobs and harming families with sick loved ones by increasing the cost of medical supplies such as urinary catheters, medication pumps and infusion supplies.

Harry Reid is refusing to negotiate with the House. Not one member from the Senate showed up to a meeting the House set up. It's hard for Republicans to negotiate when the Democrats won't even come to the table. It seems Harry Reid cares more about preserving the President's legacy than protecting the American people.

Sincerely,

Pattie Curran

You did see the number of people that visited the state exchanges as well as the government exchange yesterday, right? Sounds to me like a lot of people want the Affordable Care Act.

You did see the news stories that less than 1% of the people visiting signed up, right? ZERO people in Louisiana...and the Minnesota exchange leaked some hundreds of thousands of people's social security numbers- not even people who signed up. Sounds to me like there are a lot of curious people who decline signing up if they can ever get into the site. They see the huge cost increases and say no. The launch was a failure. Over 3 years to build it, billions of dollars and the site crashed within 4 minutes. If this were a private company, the team would have been fired and the launch considered a failure. But because it is Obamacare, people think it is AWESOME and want this same inept government to have access to their private records and to run their healthcare. Seems to me that folks are drinking too much Kool-Aid. #EpicFAIL
