It is often stunning how tone deaf some Washington policy makers can be.
Last month, UnitedHealth, the largest health insurance company in the United States, announced that it will no longer provide insurance through the Federal exchanges we all know as “ObamaCare”. Unsurprisingly to those of us outside of the Washington Beltway, the reason given was simply the ever-mounting and uncontrolled costs of operating under the President’s signature healthcare law.
Each of us is in the middle of yet another year of rising monthly health insurance bills. Each of us has watched as the cost of every-day healthcare items at CVS, Target and even Walmart continue to rise.
As the economic policies of President Obama continue to cause us to pay higher bills with the same paycheck we’ve had for years, it is terrifying to think how some Members of Congress just don’t get it.
