Letter: Scaring seniors

Seeing isn’t believing! Recently I saw a couple of TV commercials on WMUR about Obamacare. They show women complaining about having their insurance canceled on them because of Obamacare. This garbage is absolute hogwash. We do not know the circumstances of their particular cases, but I can assure you that these commercials are nothing but political propaganda aimed at the senior citizens of New Hampshire. Our seniors have enough in everyday life to worry about and many already feel the extreme anxiety.

Medicare Advantage was cancelled which was for more affluent seniors and draining regular Medicare. Many of these ads, especially the ones by the Koch Brothers Crossroads have had to be pulled because they are blatantly misleading and dishonest.

"if you like your doctor..you can keep your doctor..period"...BHO..lie of the year.

Sen. Landrieu has received $27,000 in campaign contributions since 2000 from Koch Industries and its subsidiaries and employees, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Koch’s political action committee has given Landrieu’s another $35,000, including $15,000 during the current election cycle, making the company one of her PAC’s top 20 donors…Sen. Mark Pryor (D., Ark.) recently attacked ‘the Koch brothers’ reckless agenda’ despite having received a $5,000 contribution from Koch Industries’ PAC

Each of those women looked to me like they were eligible for Medicare, and in fact one of them specified that it was the "suplemental" insurance that was cancelled. No one who is on Medicare will have their primary insurance cancelled. In the absence of proof otherwise, I believe these women have not been left high and dry.

If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.

Yes, we get it. The facts were oversimplified and generalized. I'm sure that if the president had it to do over he would do it differently. You can choose do believe that he was purposefully misleading the American people. I have chosen to believe differently, and neither of us can prove the other wrong. Your perseveration on this point is... well, pointless.

Jeanne Shaheen: "If you want to keep your doctor, you can keep your doctor is you are willing to pay more to do so". Now we learn that you can't keep many of your medications as well and my parents who are 89 and 93 just learned that their private insurance is going up and their prescriptions took a 30% jump. All things that people were told that have not come true. It is in FACT costing so many people so much more to give a handful of people subsidies so that they can stand in line behind those people.

Sorry John...tell that to those people that are struggling with insurance issues caused by this fiasco.
