Great post.<quoted text>I don't know alot about Obamacare as I stated, but you seem really passionate about warning people of the adverse effects of this unrepealable law. It has got me curious. Can you explain to me in simple terms, the high and lows of this health care reform law, and how it will affect the different age groups and classes? I personally think the idea of Obamacare is for people to have insurance, so they can go to the doctor and prevent major health problems. This over the long term would eventually make for a healthier public. Now, indigent people just hurt and wait till they can't stand it no more and go to the E.R. with no means to pay, and the government and hospitals foot the bill for their care. Don't they? In return the hospitals charge paying patients $40 for aspirin. I know to start off there is going to be an increase in healthcare insurance premiums, but eventually if the public becomes healthier, by getting preventable care, then these major health issues should decline. Ya think? In time premiums should stable out and after that decline, and if these hospitals aren't left holding the bag, then prices of treatment should decline as well. Like I said I don't have that much interest in this issue, because there are far more pressing issues at hand. Issues that could be the end of this great nation and could make or break Obamacare. Until these issues are resolved with our government. Obamacare will be low on my list of worries. I'm just curious as to if you can explain to me why I should hate Obamacare in your own words.:)
It always comes back to the same simple facts.
If you carry insurance or pay taxes you currently pay for those who don't.
Nobody, even our Right Wing friends can dispute that.
Whether that's good or bad doesn't matter - it just is.
ObamaCare will, to greater or lessor extent, cause uninsured people to become insured.
Even out Right Wing friends don't dispute that - they only argue about it's imperfections.
Anyone who believes uninsured people should become insured people, whether by perfect or imperfect legislation, support ObamaCare.
Anyone who doesn't believe uninsured people should become insured people are against ObamaCare.
How simple can this be ?
