| I support Obamacare (Patient Protection and Affordable Healthcare Act) Decision by the Supreme Court of USA -- it reflected that people are divided on it (5-4 vote), yet it was OK to pass that law -- that nothing about it is sinister.|
I wish we could solve the alarmingly escalating healthcare cost problem WITHOUT the Government intervention, but there doesn't seem to be a solution. I have thought a lot about it.
Few years ago in Alabama, people could drive vehicles without drivers insurance. So when accidents happened, those who had the insurance ended up paying for all the costs. Then it was made mandatory and because more people were pitching into the pool, the costs have stabilized or even came down. In my mind, not providing the insurance by itself, but making it compulsory to buy private insurance is a very conservative idea and needs to be embraced.
I find it ridiculous that Mitt Romney, who could be saying "That was my idea. Obama stole it. It was a conservative solution" -- is saying he will repeal the law (that took two years of debate and review to formulate by thousands of people) on the first day in office. I hope he never gets the chance.
Our Governor says he is disappointed by the Supreme Court Decision. Perhaps all these people don't care about the uninsured Americans. They somehow think only illegal immigrants and people on welfare live without health insurance.
I am a small business owner, and I support Obamacare not so much for the means, but because of the goal it is trying to achieve. During the two years of debate, no other credible solutions were forthcoming.
I support Obamacare because I myself cannot afford a $40,000 colonoscopy or $20,000/month cancer treatment. The costs have reached absurd levels.
I support Obamacase because it is an attempt to reform the rotting healthcare system in America -- there is a great disconnect between people who pay and people who use the system -- by making everybody a stake-holder, Obama is widening the pool of payers. That's how I see it.
