Jobs, not Obamacare

As petty as it sounds, I feel that the people who did not apply for medical insurance by March 31, as dictated by President Barack Obama’s law – now extended – should not be given any more time to file for insurance. Those of us who busted our chops finding, filing and paying for insurance by the end of 2013 should possibly be reimbursed for our efforts to follow the Affordable Care Act law.

What America needs is jobs, not a siphon hose firmly attached to the government’s trough.

Elizabeth Rust
