Terry Kelly: Empty promises

May 9, 2014 

All we are hearing from politicians is that if they get into office they are going to do away with Obamacare. It is funny to think everyone is going to do away with it, but no one has proposed how he intends to replace it and how he would address the millions of people who are already part of the system.

If we, as voters, look at who is running for office and find some credibility in a well-thought-out, complete plan, then voting would be a lot easier.

Just voting for someone who makes a promise is not a way to put someone into office. Even those already in office want to change it but provide no credible plan on how. This is similar to asking a boss for a raise without first doing homework on why we deserve it.

Sure, all politicians make promises, but bashing a system that is finally working, saying it needs change, without doing the homework on how to change it is just another promise to be taken with a grain of salt.
