Life-changing legislation

-A A +A

To the editor:
Regarding Jude Eden’s letter in the Aug 14 edition of the Beacon: Yes, Obamacare is a big deal because we are all going to live the nightmare personally.
Obamacare remains broadly unpopular across America. A new poll of American voters shows a majority of 57 percent support defunding this unfair, unaffordable, unworkable law. And here in my own home, its impact is now being felt.
We just received information from our provider, Blue Cross of North Carolina, that because we have a non-grandfathered plan, we lose our high-deductible plan and may be moved to a plan that won’t offer the same broad choices in benefits, including perhaps the physicians/hospitals of our choice.
In addition, it states that because of the Affordable Care Act, our new plan “will result in a large price increase.”
Didn’t the president promise we could keep the insurance and doctors we liked? Since we already pay about $500 a month for a family of two, with a $10,000 deductible, this is alarming.
Now I find out that Obama decided to carve out a large portion of the expense (75 percent) for Congress and its staff from their own law because they found out how costly it was. Problem solved. Why would they now fight for us?
I urge you to contact Sens. Richard Burr and Kay Hagan and Rep. Mike McIntyre to stop the implementation and enforcement of Obamacare by demanding they defund the largest, life-changing and destructive legislation in our time and restore patient-centered health care in America.
