We have all heard the doomsday laments of the left claiming that “health care” will be ripped away from the sick and the poor as well as the elderly. The premise of the left side of the political spectrum is that Republicans are heartless creatures who just want to throw sick and/or poor people out onto the streets to die in the gutter.
I am very frustrated by the outright lies the Democrats are trying to spread about the impending repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. Actually, the name “Affordable Care Act” is a misnomer. To most people who know better, the “reform” law, with its 2,500+ pages of economy-strangling regulations is more accurately known as the “Unaffordable Care Act.” I’ve seen this moniker cited by several people whose Facebook and Twitter pages I frequent.
Are you wondering why I have chosen the issue of health care to write about? Do you wonder what my background is that makes me knowledgeable about this subject even though I’m not a doctor and I don’t even play one on TV?
When the subject of health care is discussed, as it relates to repealing Obamacare, and what might replace it, one very important definition appears to be missing – that is health care.
I watched the inauguration of President Donald Trump this morning as I worked at my laptop. I am always in awe of the moment of inauguration when the leadership of our country changes hands. President of the United States – what a huge responsibility for anyone to take on!
