Re: Rubio Quietly Undermines Affordable Care Act

Dear Sirs:
Your reporter Robert Pear characterizes Marco Rubio’s amendment to the Affordable Care Act, which reduces the government’s subsidy to participating insurance companies, as a case of “quiet legislative sabotage”. Sabotage? Really? Aside from the fact that his colleagues passed the measure, which hardly constitutes sabotage, Rubio’s amendment illustrates that ObamaCare is NOT health insurance. Since the cooperating real insurance companies must pay claims on clients with pre-existing ailments, ObamaCare is nothing more than welfare on demand. Call things what they are and stop attempting to sway readers’ opinions with loaded and poorly chosen words. There’s enough of that on your Op Ed pages.
