Now, of course I realize that there are issues with the Affordable Care Act. Some say the ACA is not affordable at all. I have heard this complaint from Democrats and Republicans alike. I think there is something extremely important to note about the various complaints, however.
Before Obamacare there was REPUBLICAN-CARE…
People were dying under Republican-care. Why? Because the Republicans DON’T CARE. They simply do not care about those who cannot afford to pay for healthcare all on their own. The self-employed, those who are not employed by a large group who can buy into healthcare at a reasonable rate, the poor, or those who fall between the cracks… there was no healthcare for these folks. These folks were dying in the street. NO ONE CARED UNTIL PRESIDENT OBAMA!
NOT SINCE HILLARY AND BILL CLINTON DID ANYONE DO ANYTHING FOR THOSE OF US WITHOUT HEALTH CARE.
For me and my teenage daughter, no one gave a hoot until President Obama.
My daughter has severe bipolar disorder. Most people are clueless about what I’ve dealt with all by myself. They have no idea what my daughter has dealt with. And most people do not care. It’s rare when a president actually impacts our lives. President Obama did. I’m not sure what we would have done the last few years without the prescription coverage and the help paying for my child’s monthly hospitalizations. I only know that these are fighting words for me, when someone criticizes this president or the ACA.
Yes, I know it’s not perfect and that it needs some serious tweaking, but it’s a start! Hillary Clinton will work on it and improve it! The Republicans do not care about those who cannot afford healthcare.
Jesus Christ would have cared. JESUS CHRIST CARES NOW! And I assure you that Jesus is not advocating for the Republican take on the ACA or for Trumpcare.
Trump does not care, and neither does Mike Pence.
