My View On Health Care - An Editorial
Worrell - December 26, 2013
Those of us who
are a bit wise in the ways of our Government,
have surrendered to the idea this same
Government has, and will, screw us. So far, it
has been in smaller increments, to the degree
where we are able, but not amenable to adjust.
This health care plan, that was crammed down our
throats without our opinion or permission,
brings such a monumental expense to millions,
they may never recover.
Just as daylight savings takes an hour off of
one end of the day and puts it on the other end,
it's still the same length of time. Obamacare
has led to the loss of health care to millions
of people in order to give it to millions of
others. You still have approximately the same
amount of people without healthcare and without
financial means to secure it. The real disaster
is they manage to assess a fine if you don't
comply. You could say the situation is
We have seen the problems of the Government
website. We have heard the insurance companies
balking against paying for services when they're
not sure exactly what they have to pay for. We
have seen Obama give exemptions to certain
groups and moving deadlines from day to day
trying to fix the situation. And it's being done
under presidential edicts, some being against
the law of this same health care bill, and the
law in general. We have seen Obama offer
subsidies to some to help pay for insurance. And
the working middle class is the one that gets
stuck for all of this.
I would guess
that the cost of this disaster would have been
only a fraction of the current cost (we don't
really know what it will end up costing us) if
just the people without health care were given
it free and rest of us left alone. We still
would have complained, but the cost would have
been obtainable without total disruption of our
lives and the economy. The economy is another
story on it's own, and the effect on it will be
realized soon enough.
Unfortunately the healthcare bill will stay, at
least until it's repealed or amended. How soon
this will happen could depend several things.
1. How far down
the President's ratings go.
2. How many Democrats loose their jobs in the
next elections, and if they can run far enough
away from the President for that not to happen.
3. And the final thing is how many millions of
disgruntled people will storm the White House
before the end of the president's term and
demand that his lease is up and to get out.
