Delay implementation and fix the legislation
The president’s repeated claims about his signature health-care reform law have proved to be more than the usual exaggerations and spin we expect from politicians; they are outright lies [“Your health plan is canceled: Q & A on a growing headache,” page one, Oct. 30].
Dozens of times during the past three years he has claimed that if you like your current policy, you can keep it. For the millions of Americans who purchase individual plans, that is simply not true, and the president has known it all along. The truth is that all Americans will have enhanced coverage, whether they want it, need it or can afford it.
Health-care reform is a must, but this is a bad law poorly implemented, and we simply can’t afford it. Delay implementation and fix the legislation while you fix the website.
