Oba­macare, big gov­ern­ment not the an­swer

The Washington Times Daily - - Editorial -

As I watch the con­fu­sion and chaos caused by the fool­ish lead­ers that brought us Oba­macare, it makes me pon­der what has hap­pened to com­mon sense in Amer­ica. This new law is a fine ex­am­ple of ir­re­spon­si­ble lead­er­ship. It is a mea­sure passed be­fore any of th­ese self-im­por­tant politi­cians even took the time to read it fully.

There was no way that any one of the Democrats who voted for this law un­der­stood how it was go­ing to work. The now-in­fa­mous quote by then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Cal­i­for­nia Demo­crat (“We have to pass this law so that you can find out what is in it.”) high­lights the ir­ra­tional­ity of th­ese lead­ers’ think­ing. To say that Mrs. Pelosi and her co­horts are out of touch with ev­ery­day Amer­i­cans is the ul­ti­mate un­der­state­ment.

More and big­ger gov­ern­ment is not the an­swer, and nei­ther are lead­ers such as Pres­i­dent Obama, mak­ing fraud­u­lent claims about this law. Lead­ers with in­tegrity, self-con­trol, com­mon sense and lim­ited-gov­ern­ment val­ues are the an­swer. MIKE HART Kokomo, Ind.
