Rep. Bruce Braley’s website claims my thoughts and concerns are important to him. Unfortunately, his responses are no more than talking points similar to those of Sen. Tom Harkin and Rep. Dave Loebsack.
I contacted Rep. Braley on his website and expressed my concerns with ObamaCare, specifically: the impact on the national debt, rationed health care, 21 new taxes, shortage of doctors, doctors increasingly refusing Medicare patients, and the $500 billion cut from Medicare.
His response was a proud statement that he had voted for the bill and made reference to the extended coverage for those with preconditions, students remaining on parent policies (until age 26) and the alleged reduction of prescription drug costs.
Granted, these are positive aspects and talking points of ObamaCare, but Braley did not respond to my concerns. Democrats in Congress don’t like to be confronted about other consequences of ObamaCare, such as the thousands of Internal Revenue Service agents being hired to investigate your health insurance.
Keep your doctor, your insurance and pay less for health care? Sure, just like them there shovel-ready jobs!
