Obama is no Demo­crat

The Washington Times Daily - - Editorial -

Pres­i­dent Obama has been apol­o­giz­ing for the enor­mous num­ber of health insurance pol­icy cancellations that were caused by Oba­macare (“Obama: ‘I am sorry they are find­ing them­selves in this sit­u­a­tion,’” Web, Nov. 7). He says that he is sorry, but it’s just another lie, and the “apolo­gies” are not ac­cepted.

The Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion had three years to write reg­u­la­tions for a smooth tran­si­tion. In­stead, Mr. Obama and his ad­min­is­tra­tion wrote reg­u­la­tions that they knew would force insurance com­pa­nies to can­cel poli­cies. It is a re­peat of the nasty pat­tern of be­hav­ior seen by Mr. Obama and his ad­min­is­tra­tion in 2010. About six months af­ter he signed the Oba­macare bill into law, insurance com­pa­nies started can­cel­ing the health insurance poli­cies of tens of thou­sands of sick chil­dren who had health insurance poli­cies. The insurance com­pa­nies were given a dead­line for a de­ci­sion to ei­ther can­cel those poli­cies or con­tinue to cover the chil­dren with new rules that might bank­rupt them.

Oba­macare — laugh­ingly also known as the Af­ford­able Care Act — is not about af­ford­able care. It is about a fed­eral gov­ern­ment grab for power over peo­ple in a most fas­cist way.

I am a Demo­crat. I am a for­mer elected Demo­crat precinct com­mit­tee­man. Here is my view: Mr. Obama is not an Amer­i­can Demo­crat. WOODROW WILCOX Grif­fith, Ind.
