Dear sir: Thank you for your reply.  There is an absence in it I noted.  No where did I detect any desire to remove government control on healthcare.  That is what I am asking.  The origin of health care insurance was government price controls on labor and the market looked to find another way to attract and reward good labor.  That is the origin of insurance in healthcare.  Government interference was the impetus.  More or different government interference won’t fix it.  Better programs aren’t the answer.  Freedom combined with responsibility is.  Reign in the trial lawyers and make people responsible for their own health care decisions.  When people have to pay for what they get, the market changes.  People receiving something paid for by someone else is socialism and a detriment to decent society.  This includes welfare, but that is a topic for another letter.

At this point, I reiterate the topic of my original letter.  I am seeking the removal of obammacare, not it’s replacement.  I am asking for government out of healthcare, not simply changed strings on we marionettes.  I know it’s an uphill battle as it requires government to actually give up power to the people and government is loathe to do so.  I also note that those elected officials know we the people desire removal of obammacare as there were several votes last year – during the election – with that as the topic.  Interesting that now we have a president who will sign such a bill and none has been presented.  Those actions are screaming louder than anything I could ever write. The Republicans are a bunch of hypocrites who present bills in an election year in accord with the desires of the voters who are subsequently ignored after the election.  Again: government out of healthcare.  Period.
