Letter: Politics, not Obamacare, is the real problem with health care

September 26, 2013 

Please! Really! Stop with the theatrics of political grandstanding on the Senate floor for 21 hour 19 minutes, and come up with a better health care plan for this country than what we currently have in place. The backing of Senator Cruz by the tea partiers and Alaska’s most worshipped quitter of a governor, tells me just how out there this guy really is!! For those currently in need of health care insurance, from what I have been reading premiums should be lower than originally projected with deductibles higher, but at least you will be insured, which should be less of a burden on the federal government and tax paying citizens. So what is the real problem here, besides politics!
