Health in­sur­ance rate hikes were in­evitable

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Gary Gam­ber, Reis­ter­stown

Why is The Sun only now re­port­ing on sky­rock­et­ing health in­sur­ance costs of the Af­ford­able Care Act (“Mary­lan­ders face hefty rate in­creases for Oba­macare,” Sept. 9)?

The Sun knew that in­sur­ance in­dus­try econ­o­mists had pre­dicted that sharp rate in­creases were in­evitable. Yet those warn­ings were al­ways printed be­low the fold or buried on the back pages.

The Sun, like all lib­eral me­dia, was in the tank for Pres­i­dent Barack Obama and his lib­eral min­ions in Congress. The con­se­quences of his plan for the av­er­age cit­i­zen mat­tered not be­cause at the end of the day we are all sheep to be shorn in the ad­vance­ment of so­cial­ism.

Re­gard­less of how one feels about Don­ald Trump, the elec­tion of Hil­lary Clin­ton would guar­an­tee that av­er­age peo­ple con­tinue to be abused by poli­cies that spread the wealth not from the wealthy but from those of us who pay the bills for others who won’t pay a dime.

I’d rather take a chance and vote for the un­known over Ms. Clin­ton. A vote for Hil­lary is a vote for an Amer­ica where hard-work­ing, mid­dle-class cit­i­zens pay all the bills.
