Obamacare is really only as effective as the political views of the person that you are asking. Despite that both of these politicians are very smart, ask Obama and then ask Paul Ryan to discuss the effects of our nation’s healthcare, their answers will be like night and day.
Let us abstract a more unbiased approach to discerning an answer to this predicament. Just the facts, mam. According to Health and Human Services, more than 11.3 million people have signed up for the Affordable Care Act.
“We’re seeing unprecedented demand” for coverage, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell said in a statement, which noted that the consumers now seeking coverage “are increasingly young, engaged and shopping for the best plan.” Washington Post article
If we can agree that “unpresidented” amounts of people are obtaining healthcare now because of Obamacare, why then are the Republicans trying so hard to take it away from the people who voted them in? A better question is, what morons are actually voting for these politicians who are striving to take healthcare from their children?
“This disaster of a law has led to massive premium spikes, less choice for patients and a collapse of the exchange markets, and no amount of spinning from the White House can hide this ugly reality,” AshLee Strong, a spokeswoman for Speaker Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin, said Wednesday.
Huh? Millions of more people are covered. Why don’t you mention that?
How could the Speaker of the House, one of the most important positions in our country call something a disaster that brings health coverage to more than 20 million Americans?
Even in Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin, the amount of uninsured has been sliced in half as a result of Obamacare. Boston Globe article
In their defense, Republican’s have to fight Obamacare like an army of zombies descending the mountain. Remember how hard they tried to block the Affordable Health Care Act? In fact, they spent more time trying to block healthcare for your family than any other legislation in American history.
They started the fight and they have to keep fighting. Even if it means taking away something that could make you and your sister healthier, they have a point to prove.
You voted them in. Now you could sit in your shit.
