Taxpayers pay again

The Commercial-News

---- — Editor:

The Washington elite were supposed to be on Obamacare, just like most of us. Now that they see what it’s going to cost, they don’t want it. So, as usual with the Democratic Party in charge, it’s been changed. They went to Sen. Harry Reid. He went to President Obama, and they are now exempt from this health care bill.

So many other waivers were granted for a lot of their campaign contributors.

In essence, who is going to pay once again for these pampered politicians in Washington, yes, once again?

The taxpayers.

The major portions of this health care bill are a shame, and the majority of the American people and business owners don’t want it.

Amidst all of the scandals, cover-ups, lies, backpedaling and continued spending, the people have nothing but disgust for this reckless and dysfunctional government.
