  •     President Obama said numerous times before the Affordable Health Care Act (AHCA) came up for vote that "if you like your present insurance policy you can keep it."   
        To date, over 4 million people have lost their policies.  The Administration blames the insurance companies but they no have to comply with the new AHCA regulations by including maternity care, pediatrics, mental health care and a host of other things that many people do not want or need, but have to pay for nonetheless.  Another example of the President's unrelenting push to redistribute the wealth.   
        The President also said that the Affordable Health Care Act would "lower your premiums $2,500 per family per year." Sounds like a good deal, right? Who wouldn't vote for that?  
        Instead most premiums have increased, doubling and tripling in some cases, and the people most affected are the middle class.   
        This administration says they're replacing our "sub-standard" policies with better policies. They don't have a clue what kind of policies we have so how can they call them sub-standard? Most likely we've all chosen the coverage we prefer at a cost we can afford.   
        A free people should not be forced to buy something they do not want, at a price they can't afford with the threat of a fine if they don't comply. And why is it that the President, his Cabinet, Congress and the Supreme Court aren't forced into ObamaCare as well as the rest of us?   
        It's we the people, who have to make our voices heard loud and clear concerning the health-care debacle and all other overreaches by this administration.   
        We definitely are veering too far away from the democratic principles and freedoms that our forefathers envisioned for this great country of ours... something to think about the next time you step into that voting booth.
