Questions critical thinking skills


A recent letter has me constantly amazed by the inability of people to think critically and really question motives of their elected representatives - not just the officials they oppose ideologically, but to also question those they are smitten with.

First of all, Obamacare is not about trying to provide quality health care to all Americans. I believe it is about power and sweeping up another group of "low information" voters who will vote those individuals back into office who offer them something for nothing.

Why do people from all over the world continue to come to America for health care if our system has been such an abysmal failure? And, I believe to continue to blame Bush for what has gone on these last six years while Obama has been running the show is idiotic.
