Dear Mr. President,
With all due respect due your office, your policies are destroying the potential opportunities for all US citizens present and future – the same opportunities our country extended to you that made your success possible. Your administration has the highest debt of any previous in our country’s history. Adding to this debt is your signature achievement, PPACA Obamacare, that is destroying any semblance of private individual healthcare in our country. Your three fundamental promises about PPACA Obamacare – “you can keep your health plan,” “you can keep your doctor,” “you’ll save $2,500 per family” – were all bold face lies. There is mounting evidence that your administration had known since 2010 that these were untrue. This is an impeachable offense. Despite the dozens of times you reassured the media and public that “you can keep your health plan,” millions of people are losing their affordable health insurance and being forced by your law to purchase more expensive bloated coverage that they do not want to purchase and cannot afford. So your promise of saving a family $2,500 per year is another lie. Your law now taxes them if they will not or cannot purchase this government determined coverage from the government approved for profit vendors. Even Chief Justice Roberts, in his head and heart when he wrote the minority opinion, knows it is unconstitutional. Instead, he legislated from the bench that it was a tax not a fine, despite the legal argument your administration made.
In the three years since 2010 passage of PPACA Obamacare, your administrations HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius carelessly spent over $600,000,000 of taxpayer and borrowed money to design and implement and insurance data exchange system that didn’t function appropriately for the whole first month of the public offering. Worse, many security experts caution the the system is inadequate and untested for privacy and security of most sensitive personal health information, thereby violating HIPAA law and HITECH act.
PPACA Obamacare establishes untested ACOs accountable care organizations that slant the entire health industry away from small private offices toward large health systems, that are neither efficient or cost effective. So your message, “You can keep your doctor,” is another lie as doctors are leaving their offices and some are leaving the practice of medicine altogether as they can’t keep up with the burdensome regulations and costly government compliance programs forced on our industry by insurance and government entities.
As a direct result of PPACA Obamacare onerous regulations, health insurance plan prices have increases 20-200%. This has in turn caused employers to pass those costs on to taxpaying employees or cancel their coverage altogether. Employers are also reducing full time jobs to part time jobs to avoid the tremendous cost liability in the new government compliant plans. This is dismantling our economy. Data shows that your administration knew back in 2010 that PPACA Obamacare would result in employees costs increasing and millions losing their coverage, yet you repetitively lied to the American public. Citizens who work to support themselves and our country do not deserve this ignorant treatment from you and your administration.
Central planning, socialism, communism and fascism have ingloriously failed in the world wherever they have been tried throughout world history. Why must we make those well intentioned mistakes that have destroyed other great governments and enlightened societies. Health and economy are bottom up, not top down. The government can’t make laws to force people to be successful at their own health or financial affairs.
The government can foster success by making educational resources available and not restricting success by taxing it out of existence. People and corporations must experience all the risks and benefits of their decisions. Bailouts, personal and corporate welfare programs encourage dependency on government, not independence and self sufficiency. Small centralized government that handles defense should stay out of our health and personal lives and allow us to live learn and prosper.
Mr president, PPACA Obamacare is a poorly organized attack on the healthcare industry, insurance industry and each individual patient they serve. Apparently, the law is so flagrantly abusive that the congress, executive branch and their select cronies do not have to abide by it as do the taxpaying citizens who pay your salary and those of congress. This is clearly a law that people must not follow and must be repealed.
As a family physician, I cannot, in good conscience, abide by PPACA Obamacare and will not accept ANY of its compliant plans in my office. As a patient, I will not purchase any of these bloated expensive plans through states exchanges. As a taxpayer, I am shocked and appalled at your public lies repeated again and again to change the fact that PPACA Obamacare law is destructive to our nation and its citizens. When former president Nixon was caught in a lie, he had enough respect for the office and the people he served, and resigned. I demand that you advocate for its immediate repeal or step down as President, will all due respect to your office.
Best wishes for good health
