Senator McConnell Responds With Lies About Health Care Legislation

Dear Senator McConnell:

You asked me, repeatedly, via television and the internet, to let you know my thoughts about Obamacare. I knew by your use of the word 'Obamacare' that you were fishing for a negative response but, once President Obama warmed up to the name, we all decided to use it. President Obama does care, and it will be nice for his name to stay attached to it so that all of the people who benefit in years to come will associate it with him. 

So, I did as asked. I called. And, I called again. For a while, I thought I would call every time I heard or saw an ad, but even I don't want to dedicate that much of my time to you. I called both your Louisville and Washington offices. I told them that I support Obamacare. I like Obamacare. I know that Obamacare is working for many already, and that we need to fund it so it can work for everyone. I am a huge fan of Obamacare. I love me some Obamacare. I've read the entire bill a couple of times and I've taken a class - that's how much I honestly care about and love Obamacare. Mark me down as a supporter of Obamacare, please, and tell the Senator that I want him to stop lying about Obamacare.

The people who answer phones in your office are friendly and appear to understand English. It should have been perfectly clear to them where I stand on Obamacare. But, as they should, each verified that I was saying I do, indeed, support Obamacare. 

Taking all of the above into consideration, I'm sure you understand how perfectly insulting this response letter is. The only thing I can possible believe is that you not only choose to lie, you want to lie in such a condescending, insulting way that it makes the recipients of these letters hate you. If that's the case, you have succeeded. I hate you, as my Senator and, I'm pretty darned sure, as a person. 

I notice you use 'health care legislation' instead of Obamacare in this letter. That tells me you must have realized how grateful people would be to President Obama for the Affordable Care Act so, now, you want to take it away from him. You also didn't want to call it the Affordable Care Act because that would make it easy for people to research and discover that this letter is packed with lies. How pathetically transparent you are. 

Here are some truths about Obamacare/The Affordable Care Act/health care legislation
