The ‘Affordable’ Care Act is anything but

Since it has been in force, the Affordable Care Act has disrupted the system as we knew it.

Under the cloak of affordable, the changes, increase, premiums, etc., are now unaffordable. It hit the seniors (who can least afford it) with higher premiums and more out-of-pocket expenses while it decreases some coverage and adds some that seniors really do not need.

And now they are after the Medicare Advantage, which has been a lifesaver for seniors.

My monthly premiums doubled, out-of-pocket expenses increased by $2,500, and now they want to penalize some more.

I am not ready to go off and die so they can stay in budget.

Let the politicians get their own insurance; they make enough to be able to afford it. That would save and lower some of the deficit.

Stop victimizing those of us who made our country what is today.

How wise were these words of Thomas Jefferson: “A government big enough to give you everything you want is strong enough to take everything you have.”
