Send Renee Packing

From guest writer Ginny Quaglia, a recently submitted letter to the Editor:

Your 2nd District US Representative, Renee Ellmers, was the keynote speaker at a recent Brunswick County Republican Women meeting. Several members were appalled at Ms. Ellmers’ claim that ObamaCare could not be defunded through the Continuing Resolution.  She proved her own statement false by her recent vote to do just that.  So was she lying or just misinformed?  Since she was a healthcare professional and ran on a platform opposing Obamacare, lying to people who supported her is so fundamentally wrong, it defies words.  If she was misinformed for weeks (she had plenty of time during the August Congressional recess to learn the history of excluding some mandatory spending from the CR as done since 1976) one would have to conclude she’s incompetent. The 2nd District NC voters must find a formidable conservative candidate who is truthful and principled.  They must primary Renee Ellmers. We need to defund this unworkable, unfair and un-American law known as ObamaCare, and Republicans need to LEAD on the issue instead of MIS-leading their constituents. Send Renee packing!

    I’m sorry Jude, but I have a hard time understanding why educated people are so anti-ObamaCare. Enlighten me.

    How do you defend our current set-up? Uninsured people flood the emergency rooms. They don’t pay their bills. They actually pay absolutely nothing. Hospitals write the bills off. But, we know hospitals need to make money somehow. So, what do they do? They charge people with insurance enough to also cover the costs of uninsured who use the emergency rooms. Our insurance rates are high now because we pay for ourselves, and also for the uninsured. Can you not understand this simple concept?

    What happens under ObamaCare? Many more people are forced to pay into the system. Yes, the government does subsidize the poor. But, most of that money was raised by taxing the very rich. How? They must now pay an additional 4% tax on investment income in excess of $250 K. Big WHOOP. Their tax rate on dividend income goes from 20%, up to 24% …. STILL, significantly less than what most middle income people pay on wage income.

    You honestly prefer the current set-up … where middle class people pay more for health insurance to cover the uninsured? Or, are you willing to admit that ObamaCare just may work out if you’ll give it a chance? More people will pay into the system, and richer people will be asked to pony up more to help the poor.

    Jude, I suspect you simply don’t understand the underlying economics of ObamaCare. Am I right?

      Obviously it’s you who doesn’t understand the “economics” of Obamacare. I don’t defend the current setup, it should be changed to open, interstate free-market competition which would solve the problems of high premiums, rising costs, coverage for pre-existing conditions, and wouldn’t force anyone to buy anything. That last part is why the law is illegal and unconstitutional. You cannot force people to buy things, that forces someone else to provide that thing and that is slavery, which apparently you are for. About ten of the 30 million number that were uninsured before Obamacare didn’t have insurance because they didn’t WANT it. Under Obamacare the poor are not subsidized, but elected representatives and their staffs sure are! I guess you’re for that too. The poor are having to buy Obamacare just like anyone else (except the reps and their staffs, oh and the Obama family). Obamacare is already a catastrophic disaster, has caused thousands to lose their jobs and health coverage, and caused premiums to skyrocket for millions of others. Obamacare and Obama’s policies don’t help the poor, they have created more poor and unemployed. Shared misery for all.
