Enough of the deceit! The Nov. 22 Perspectives article “Where Obamacare Works: Bipartisan Efforts Are Making It a Success in Our States” is designed to mislead. Why would these three governors who penned the article give examples of insurance premiums going down 5 percent to 40 percent without also mentioning how the deductible changed in these policies?
Every working middle-class person knows that there are three components of their health insurance: monthly premiums, deductibles and where they can go to get health services. As reported by all the major news outlets we currently have 5 million working middle-class Americans who have received cancellation notices. These are Americans who pay 100 percent of their premiums. We have unions who fought hard through negotiation to have excellent employer-based insurance programs that are in jeopardy. We have uncertainty in employer-subsidized insurance programs. It is not the time for state governors to write an article and omit crucial information.
Let’s get this poorly written health care law, which was questionably sold to the American people and horribly implemented, fixed.
