LETTER: Why would any American vote to repeal Obamacare?

To misquote a famous saying, “There are lies, damn lies and politics.”

Highly paid politicians who know better still refer to Obamacare as if it were insurance that someone sells.

That’s pretty crazy, because Congress passed the Affordable Care Act, which they now call Obamacare.

It is a law that regulates insurance companies that for centuries have cheated us all.

The ACA also reduces the federal income tax for people who have medical insurance.

And it pays some of the insurance costs for people based on their incomes.

Aside from outright bribes to destroy the ACA, why would any American ever vote to repeal it?
