This is in response to some of the comments I got on this post.
I really fail to understand the problem. What part of this is so bad. EVERYONE WILL BE ABLE TO HAVE HEALTHCARE. Everyone. Everyone meaning not just those that can afford it. It won't be rationed out. If you have a problem, you can see a doctor.
WOW! THAT IS AWFUL!
Come on people! It just seems a little selfish that you can sit here and tell me that it's okay that people are turned away because they are too sick or too poor to be covered.
So No, I may not have family that are doctors or in the medical field, but I have plenty of family and friends that are on the other end.
The sick and the uninsured.
The ones that have insurance that is so frickin' expensive that they refuse to see a doctor unless a limb is about to fall off.
The ones that have to choose between the light bill and buying their medicine.
So forgive me if I don't feel sorry for the doctors when people's lives are at stake!
In the opposing people's defense, I do understand that people are afraid. This is a big change. People are afraid of change. I get that. But if you give it some time, it may surprise you. And I really mean that you have to give it some time. Nothing can happen over night. This bill is gonna take some time to make it's impact. Let it run it's course before you stand back and critisize.
I wish the GOP would stop and think about "the people" rather than the bottom line of the big insurance companies. Keep the rich richer. HMP! I feel it crazy all together. I'm okay with paying a little extra in taxes if that means that sick peoples' lives might be saved. The government would have stepped in if the insurance companies would not have gotten so outrageous.
So basically, you've been allowed to do it your way for many, many years. Now it's time for the government to step in and do it the RIGHT way!
Oh and let's not leave out how RIDICULOUS it is that republicans are sending DEATH THREATS? How grown up is that?
