Regarding “‘Navigators’ to help state residents get Obamacare,” when President Barack Obama, in his recent press conference, addressed all the medical conditions that the new health care act covers, he failed to mention that someone has to pay for that coverage. That coverage doesn’t come cheap. It is one of the reasons that the Affordable Care Act will never be affordable.
When Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius told us that the “affordability” in the new system would come from the increased competition between health care insurers, she failed to tell us how. The plan that began with the promise to provide health care coverage to some 32 million citizens who had none, a plan that I think most reasonable citizens supported, has turned into a complex bureaucratic nightmare. It would certainly appear to be time for our president to declare a cooling-off period to take stock of where we are headed and finally tell the citizens who must pay the bills. In addition, let’s not make the same mistakes when addressing the cost of immigration reform.
