GUEST EDITORIAL OBAMACARE: The Worst is Yet to Come by Sal Giarratani As someone who has always supported access to affordable healthcare for all citizens, I continue to oppose the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 on its third anniversary, I knew the President's empty promise that ff you liked your present health insurance plan and doctor that nothing would change would never come to pass under his signature health insurance proposal. Next year in January 2014 as Obamacare becomes even more of a reality, the U.S. healthcare industry continues to purport that Obamacare will bring health insurance to millions of presently uninsured Americans. However, many in the healthcare industry are also lobbying Senate Democrats on Capitol Hill to o,erturn the $130 million in taxes needed to fund this new law which forces employers to provide insurance coverage for all full-time workers or face a fine. Many Ameri- cans will lose their current health insurance as employers decide to either pay the fine or go to more part-time employees to avoid the mandate. More Ameri- cans will be forced to go into the government- subsidized health insurance pool. In the end, business never takes a loss and consum- ers will find prices soaring to cover the President's plan. There is no such thing as a free lunch or free health care. Somebody always has to pay and in the end that someone will be individual citizens who will find their access to health care will be limited under Obamacare and the notion that under the Affordable Health Care Act of 2010 you can keep the same doctor who cur- rently treats you will be seen as a hollow promise. Sadly, I think Obamacare is here to stay and I blame Democrats in Congress who bought the Obama snake oil and like former Speaker Nancy Pelosi says, Con- gress had to pass Obamacare in order to know what was in it. As for that photo op by Senate Republicans showing a huge stack of papers as a prop at a recent press confer- ence, it would better that they were speaking out and working together to get the American people a better plan that would really work for all. The idea that more taxes and regulations will make better their health insurance is fallacious. Right now, most polls show a majority of Americans mistakenly believe what the president is selling, a cure that works for the patient. Health care/insurance reform need not be a part of the Democratic class warfare agenda. LETTERS POLICY The Post-Gazette invites its readers to submit Letters to the Editor.

They would not be able to do such a won- derful thing if not for the many people in the North End who donated money, baked goodies for the bake sale, items for the flea market or came by and bought items dur- ing the event. This is a community-wide event with so many people contributing in many different ways. It is unbelievable how generous and supportive friends, relatives, neighbors and businesses are in the North End, the group is truly blessedl A special thank you goes out to: Mary Romano for cooking all of the eggplant, meat- balls and sausages and then serving and selling them both days, along with her side- kick and husband Frank Romano. Patricia Romano, for helping with everything for like a month! Lillian Ferullo and Maryann Tordiglione for all of their help with setting up and then running the bake sale for two days.

Bill, Rebecca and Brianna Woods along with MANNY from the Nazzaro Center with set up on Thursday, Vinny Sablone for his help with clean up on Saturday.
