President did not tell truth about health care law
In regards to Joann Smith’s letter:
Ms. Smith states that “good government protects its people and is answerable to them.” Brings to mind the 2012 election campaign during which our sitting president repeatedly stated that we could keep our present health insurance and doctor, period. All said in the interest of securing his own re-election. Ms. Smith then goes on to talk about people being duped by corporate-sponsored propaganda — really? Yet, she and others are willing to drink the Kool-Aid furnished by this president and his people and a most cooperative media regarding lies/cover-up about an IRS scandal, dead Americans in Benghazi, Obamacare, and the NSA. Give me honor, honesty and integrity any day over what we are dealing with now.
One other point. She feels Republicans and big corporations are too far reaching. How far is Obamacare going to dig into our pockets? We still don’t know and won’t until after the next round of elections. Ask yourself, why did he have to lie about this health care bill — beware of what they don’t want you to know. And rich Republicans? Do the names George Soros, Bloomberg, all the Hollywood heavy hitters, Google and Bill Gates ring any bells? Just a few of the many heavy Democratic supporters.

Democrats show hypocrisy on appointments
In early January, I wrote an open letter to Sen. Joe Donnelly. I expressed concern for future generations having their futures mortgaged for their lifetime and well beyond.
Another issue was the passage of a measure, called the “nuclear option,” which allows approval of presidential appointments with a simple majority vote while it has been accepted practice for years to require a 60 vote majority to approve these appointments. This motion passed strictly down party lines, including Sen. Donnelly’s affirmative vote. A few years ago, when Republicans merely suggested passing a similar measure, Democrats made some strong remarks against it. Joe Biden made two remarks such as, “such an action would abandon America’s sense of fair play” and the other was “And I pray to God, when the Democrats take back control, we don’t do the kind of naked power grab that you are doing now.” It seems quite clear that their sense of fairness and morality does not apply to them, especially with the current administration.
