Keep Obamacare like it is. I love it.
Keep Obamacare, but NO care for non-citizens.
Keep Obamacare, but NO care for illegal aliens.
God Bless the Marine Corps.
And I can tell you have never been seriously ill while having no health care.
There are dozens of Nations considered third world that have far better health care for the poor.
Take Cuba for example.
In America, you are completely out of luck if you are uninsured.
I have lived it both ways. As a (small) small business owner, I had no employer to provide coverage. Without the combination of Obama care AND my private insurance, I'd be well under way to stage 2 cancer by now.
I have a very powerful personal story but I plan to write a large paper on that sometime in the future and I am not going to "half ass" explain it now.
Until you try to get help for your colon cancer or whatever ales you while having no insurance, you really just have no idea how pathetic "the emergency" room is as a solution. Need a stage 1 cancer removed? They'll take your blood pressure.... that is about it.
The Right seems so hideously cruel to me. But I guess maybe that some of them are simply like you, not a bad person at all, just someone that fails to realize just how bad the uninsured have it.
Its not that they "are" treated like 3rd world patients. They could only dream to be treated so well.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
Any major policy change involves uncertainties. What we can say is that the status quo isn't working. Premiums and costs spent years soaring; medical issues contribute to nearly half of all bankruptcies; employers are paying through the nose for insurance, and/or charging employees for it; care is only great for those who can afford to pay for it, and that's becoming a smaller slice of the pie.
And again: We can see that while Romneycare hasn't made MA paradise, it also hasn't resulted in an economic death spiral (e.g. unemployment rate is around the same as the national rate since at least 2003). I do not claim that every state will have the same results, but it stands to reason that Obamacare will neither be as wonderful as its proponents expect, or as disastrous as its detractors expect.
Is that why he fought not to delay the rest of Obamacare?....while calling for delay of the PPACA employer mandate, now tells us that 3 years is just not enough time to "implement them effectively". In other words, Obama is scared to death what economic harm....
