Letter: Our children will pay for giveaway

AnchorageOctober 6, 2013 

According to a letter by Mike Douthit (Oct. 5), Republicans fear the American people “might embrace the Affordable Care Act.” I would like to ask what government giveaway has ever been rejected? People think adding Obamacare to the list of government subsidies will strengthen our country. These same people think the postal service, Social Security, Medicare, Head Start, welfare, and a slew of other subsidized programs are efficient and fiscally sound. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Everything the government runs loses money, and most Democrats are content with continually increasing taxes so it doesn’t go broke. This country is a financial train wreck ready to happen, and it will be our children and grandchildren who will be the victims.
