Obamacare is the Best thing for this country
Children need Healthcare
Sometimes when we talk about healthcare we assume that we are only talking about people over the age of 50. This is just not so. People of 50 and not yet eligible for medicare often have health insurance. The people who benefit most from the affordable care act is seriously ill children. Many of these children were born with serious illnesses and need surgery just hours after they are born.
Over the past several weeks I have heard several stories of how children were helped by the affordable care act. These stories were of children who are born with heart conditions, kidney conditions and mental illnesses. The parents of these children all talked about how the changes in the affordable care act will help their families survive through the necessary medical needs of their children.
What Would Happen if Obamacare is Repealed
If the Affordable Care Act is repealed as the republican wants to do the children of these families would suffer greatly. Picture what would happen to these sick children if the family loses their home. How can a family take care of a seriously ill child if they have not place to live with that child. Unless you are a multi-millionnaire one could surely go bankrupt if you have a seriously ill person in your family. If the affordable care is repealed before we have a chance to see if it will work, what kind of country are we. There is no reason any reasonable person would want to repeal a law before we see what affect it will have on the country. This law has been a long time coming in America and we should at least be willing to see if this is better than what we had before the affordable care act (Obamacare) was passed.
