Editorial so wrong backing Obamacare

I was aghast at your editorial, "Push on to implement Obamacare," (Nov. 16), urging Democrats to go over the cliff and support Obamacare. I thought you liked them. Obamacare is a complete failure and you know it. It is a job killer and is way too expensive. If you think people are not signing up simply because of the web site problems you should think again. The real fix is simple. Scrap the law. Regulate the industry keeping the two goodies, not being dropped for getting sick and the precondition requirement. Scrap the "stay on your parents insurance until you are 26" policy. Institute tort reform and allow competition by letting the insurance companies sell across state lines.

Is that so hard?

I am an independent and those are a combination of Democratic and Republican ideas. Get to work Congress.
