Repeal Obamacare | Letter
October 16, 2012 · Updated 2:50 PM
Dear Mr. Romney,
Congratulations on an outstanding performance at the first presidential debate. Your calm, sure demeanor, your presentation of fact inspired and sealed our confidence in you as our clear choice to lead this country back to prosperity and leadership in the world.
Of particular interest to me (and I suspect to millions of other senior citizens) was your stated intent to repeal, in its entirety, the medical plan that has become known as “Obamacare.” I could not agree more.
This “Obamanation” must be repealed. America is a diverse nation and therein lies her greatness. Some areas are very industrialized, some are very agricultural, others are commercial, others, like my great state of Washington are a combination of all these. My point is that health care cannot be a one-size-fits-all proposition.
As you have so rightly proclaimed, each state must have the freedom to tailor a plan that fits their particular circumstances. Finally on this topic, repeal of Obamacare will restore the $716 billion stolen from Medicare, dollars that are desperately needed to fund this vital program.
Another area of great concern to me is that of “executive orders.” President George W. Bush, in his eight years in office, signed more executive orders than all the presidents that preceded him, combined. He signed more than 60 executive orders. President Obama, in less than four years, has signed more than 930 executive orders. When you are elected president (not if, but when) please have your staff review those 930 executive orders for content and propriety. Many of them, I’m sure, need to be repealed and I trust that you will do so.
Thank you for considering the concerns expressed in this letter. May God bless you and your family and may God bless America.
Arthur E. Gunderman, Kenmore
