Trade Obamacare for Medicare for all

Re "Short take on Obamacare" and "Obamacare is nothing scary" (Letters, Sept. 25): If Obamacare is such a good deal, why are unions, big business, federal agencies and Congress trying to postpone their enrollment for another year?

Why are major corporations cutting hours and suspending the employer coverage one letter writer thinks will still be in place? She even quotes the "excellent standards" and "free services" she read about in the 90-page bill that many in Congress failed to read.

This leads to my last question. Medicare, the government-funded health insurance program for the elderly, works and is in place. Why reinvent the wheel? Just extend the Medicare system and its bureaucracy to cover all Americans.
