If you are alive…you have heard stories about how ObamaCare will either save or destroy the United States. Most arguments within government circles seem to echo normal partisan views, with Republicans hating it and Democrats loving it. For the rank and file, it seems those with good and affordable insurance are against it while those with little or no health coverage are anxiously waiting for it’s implementation. Newscasters have already begun throwing numbers around, and many are projecting its anticipated failure, months before it ever takes effect. Well…here’s a news flash folks…
Most people that are talking ObamaCare right now have no idea what they’re talking about.
That may not be a shock to you, because like me, you are used to the media throwing random information at us that is often based in (less than) fact. A good example would be the names of the pilots of the Korean Airline crash a few months ago.
It might be a good idea to wait until some of the smoke clears before assailing or aggrandizing ObamaCare. We are entering uncharted (and some say Socialist) waters as far as most of us know, and there are far more people that DON’T understand this national healthcare plan than there are people who DO. So how can anyone take an intelligent stance?
At the end of the day, passing ObamaCare shouldn’t be viewed as a crazy idea that came to the president in a dream one night. It’s the result of something old that was failing…private sector healthcare. The system has been eroding for years, and affordable heath insurance, something that most companies offered as an inexpensive perk decades ago is now a burden that most employers can’t afford. It was reported recently that less than 50% of Illinois employers currently offer healthcare coverage to their workers. The rest are either uninsured, underinsured, or going broke trying to pay back-breaking premiums. The system has been broken for years, and action needs to be taken. If Obamacare doesn’t work, hopefully there’s a “Plan B”.
