LETTER: ObamaCare is not giving people a better health-care system

ObamaCare is not giving people a better health-care system.

For all of those who thought ObamaCare was going to bring a new dimension to this country’s health care system with lower cost, better options and better care for those who currently don’t have insurance — think again.

As Nancy Pelosi said, Congress needed to pass the bill before they and the public learned what was actually in it.

An editorial in the Investors Business Daily illustrates the scam that is being forced on each of us.

In just one state, and there are 49 to go, California, the Obama Administration has granted $910 million to set up its insurance exchange.

This expenditure is not for better health care. It is not for hospitals or supplies. It is not for more doctors, or nurses. And it is not for the so-called disadvantaged to obtain health insurance or better health care. No, it is just for the bureaucracy to set up and run the health-care exchange.

The executive director is to be paid $360,000 a year and then there are monies for staff, computer equipment, public relations and “outreach.”

“Outreach” is a major investment benefiting not the medically ill but the “community organizers” and the Democratic Party (surprise).

Under the California plan, 48 organizations are to receive $37 million to build public awareness of the health exchanges, but only a few have anything to do with health care. The NAACP received $600,000 to do door-to-door canvasing and presentations at community meetings. Unions such as Service Employees International and AFL-CIO will receive $3 million to make phone calls, robo-calls and to go door-to-door organizing, engaging (Democratic) political campaigns and electing pro-union and pro-worker candidates.

As with many government programs the public is often misled and only the powerful and politically connected benefit.
