TAKE HEED, CANDIDATES.
The day of reckoning is coming.
The new Obama healthcare law is getting a lot of beating lately by the candidates running in the Republican Party nomination race.
Why? Because, they say it is costly, it is unpopular, and it is the wrong type of system that people want.
However, if it is that obnoxious, why are people not out there protesting against it? Or is it sheer propaganda by these politicians to bamboozle the public, and so to discredit President Barack Obama?
The healthcare industry has been dysfunctional for ages, and people were losing their policies for any reason at all that suited the private healthcare insurance providers. Premiums were skyrocketing, and those who had preexisting conditions were turned away from healthcare facilities, or were being evicted from hospital beds.
In a nutshell, the situation was pretty awful, and it called for a reform; hence, the Obama administration took action to overhaul it.
It has now added more than 30 million uninsured people to the program. Those who could not even go to the ER for any type of care, most of whom were poor families and the elderly.
Should these people go back to "the status quo"? Certainly not.
Those politicians who were threatening to repeal the new Obama administration healthcare law did not know what they were talking about. There would be millions of people out in the streets, it would make Occupy Wall Street to look like a picnic.
They had every reason to warn Romney, Bachmann and Cain that if they were happy with their stainless steel or titanium back and cancer remission, and were free from the effects of a motor accident in a foreign land, they must not dare to play with what they were calling "Obamacare".
The healthcare industry was broken by the same insurance companies that were making political campaign contributions to those candidates, for them to say that they would repeal the new law, if they had the chance.
Well, they would not have the chance, if those who were benefiting from it (Obamacare) could help it; and there were millions of them.
Take heed, candidates.
