Ok. So I laid out my heart, mind, soul the other day regarding ACA and treatment of others.
Today, I want to see if the conversation can be flipped. I don’t know who will respond to this and I hope it doesn’t turn into a huge argument, but maybe if we all had this conversation…maybe we could find the middle ground we all hope for when it comes to universal healthcare in America. Maybe someone in DC will read this little blog and work to create or repair something that works for all of us in a way that it is beneficial…and puts America on equal footing with other developed nations, even the nation of Israel that our nation holds in such high regards.
So, here is the question. If I see something that I have information to show is false, I will comment with that information. Not an opinion…factual commentary.
If you 100% want to see ACA repealed. Why? And if it’s honestly because it’s called Obamacare or created during the Obama Presidency, own it. Admit it.
If you answer as to “it’s not affordable,” then tell the world what affordable is for you. What would you consider to be a fair price and deductible and copay for coverage (not just a catastrophic plan) for your family?
If you answer “it contains death panels,” you need to put it in the actual statute/rule from the plan indicating as such….please note…I’m have a very factual rebuttal to that statement…it will be used.
If you have a pre-existing condition and are against ACA, why?
And, if you thought Obamacare was not the same thing as ACA/Marketplace….own that too. We need to stop politicizing the health of our nation with partisanship.
Lastly, if you hate ACA because of the fines….what’s your two cents on being required to carry car insurance, by law, where part of your rate is based upon the accident/claim rates of your geographical area? If you were to get sick, or develop a condition…how would you have covered the possible six figure bill?
So….this is your time to explain to me why you want it repealed…and what a fair replacement or repair looks like to you.
We are at historic levels for the number of uninsured Americans….and the ACA does save lives. Let’s all agree on the good that it does….because it does.
