To the Editor,
I am amazed that anyone can think that President Obama really cares about the middle class.
Our national debt is over $16 trillion. Our children and grandchildren will have to pay for this. He says we don’t need to worry short term but we will long term, meaning our children and grandchildren.
We have millions out of work and many thousands who have given up even looking for jobs. Many thousands, if not millions, of middle class citizens are losing their homes and unable to provide for their families.
His administration has added so many regulations on small businesses that a business owner cannot plan for future growth because of uncertainty. His health care bill will cause — and has already caused — employers to stop providing health care insurance to their workers. This will result in more people having to go on government health care. The cost of health care will sky rocket.
Doctors are very concerned about what ObamaCare will do to patient-doctor relationships. Their treatment will have to be approved by a group of federal bureaucrats. For instance, does Granny have enough life years left to justify her knee replacement surgery?
People on welfare and food stamps have increased profoundly under Obama. This country is broke; we do not have the money to support half of the population. Just turn on the TV and see what is happening in Spain and Greece when a government is forced to cut back on entitlements.
No, Obama does not care about the middle class. He cares about being re-elected. He is more interested in his power than in meeting with foreign leaders. When the Middle East is burning and 27 of our embassies have been attacked, he goes to Las Vegas for a fundraiser.
