A senior’s perspective on Obama

My name is Raymond Larson. I am 83 years old. I live in fear of what life will be like if Obama is elected to another term. During his first term, the people living in poverty has increased to over 46 million, many of them senior citizens.

Because of the hundreds of millions raided from Medicare to help pay for Obamacare, there will soon be a cap on how much Medicare will pay for treatments. Reduction in pay for health care providers, along with more regulations, will likely be reduced to pay for Obamacare as well.

Obama will have 15 unelected appointees to an “Independent Advisory Board” who will have life and death power over us where even the Legislature has no control over their decisions. After you reach a certain age, it is most likely the “Independent Advisory Board” will refuse to die soon and the money wasted. Sixteen-thousand dreaded IRS agents will be hired to enforce Obamacare. It is interesting to note that 1,168 groups, covering 3,095,595 people have requested and obtained waivers. What is that about?
