I’m a WWII veteran of the U.S. Army. I risked my life and was wounded in combat while taking part in defeating dictator Adolf Hitler and his armed forces.

I didn’t think the day would come when anyone would be allowed to participate in U.S. government as dictators, especially legislators. The time has come.

A president is backed by a large number of legislators who may not have the mental capacity to realize that they have taken away the freedom of many Americans to pay for their medicine without being treated as criminals for not having insurance coverage on medicine.

America is no longer the land of the free. My wife is a victim. She had insurance coverage on medicine for several years. As a result, she lost several hundred dollars each year.

She canceled. She was treated as a criminal because of a controversial law designed by dictators to force Americans to have insurance coverage on medicine or be penalized and pay $7.80 for each month that they didn’t have insurance coverage on medicine.

For example, in 2013 without insurance coverage, she paid the total cost of her medicine, which was $83.93. She saved the cost of insurance coverage on medicine, which would have been at least $487.20 for 2013 coverage.

She has decided to comply with the law and now has insurance coverage on medicine.

Only a small percentage of insurance coverage is used to pay part of the cost of medicine; the insured pays the part that insurance don’t cover.

She will be paying several hundred dollars each year, which will provide insurance companies with an enormous amount of kickback dollars available to reward the dictators who passed the law to force Americans to purchase insurance coverage that they don’t need on medicine.

She will continue to pay the penalty of $7.80 for each month she didn’t have insurance coverage on medicine.

Our legislators as dictators have figured out a way to come up with a law that forces you to be damned if you do or damned if you don’t comply with the law.

There will be more tragic events taking place in America as pressure is applied to shove the “Obamacare” package down the American people’s throats.

Several undesirables were removed from power in the last election. I’m sure there will be a larger number who are performing as dictators will be removed in the next election and be replaced by candidates who are qualified to return the operation of the U.S. government to the way it was before the present dictators took over.
