Letter: Most Americans, Utahns recognize lies about ACA
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Despite all of the propaganda spewed by the billionaire Koch brothers, the tea party and its allies during the 2012 presidential campaign to blame the bad economy on President Obama, the majority of voters knew the truth and re-elected him. The U.S. economy blew up under President Bush, the result of years and years of bank deregulation and of erosion of financial oversight.

Today, once again, the Koch brothers and their allies are trying to hoodwink Americans into believing lies, but this time it is about the Affordable Care Act. Again most Americans know the truth: The Affordable Care Act offers better health insurance than what they had in the past, and they will never go back to a corrupt, profit-driven health care system.

Americans believe in justice and fairness. They want basic health care for themselves, their children, grandchildren, friends, neighbors and all American citizens. So, Gov. Gary Herbert's rejection of the Affordable Health Care Act and its Medicaid expansion for Utahns is a shocking disgrace.

Apparently, Gov. Herbert does not have the sense of justice and fairness that the majority of Utah citizens and most Americans believe in.
