Obamacare will be disaster on middle class families

October 9, 2013 

Obamacare will increase the cost of health insurance by over $700 monthly for a family of four, according to recent media reports. What on earth are both Democratic and Republican politicians thinking!!

That $700 represents a monthly mortgage payment for a middle-class family. Paying this increase in their health insurance will probably mean losing their home. If that family is renting with a plan to buy their first home, they can forget about it.

Why are the alarm bells not ringing? There is a very long list of bad outcomes that Obamacare will visit upon American families, but this is the one that may destroy our country.

What happened to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!

The elite leadership of the Republican Party should be ashamed but they are not. They cannot even find the resolve to support those of their colleagues who are pleading for defunding of the disaster that is coming. Obamacare must be stopped now!!
