I don’t like Obamacare.
I can’t stand it.
It’s all in the name.
Obamacare is about politics and grandstanding and is too intertwined in the two-headed monster of the American political system. It represents everything that is wrong with American politics.
But affordable healthcare is what we need.
That’s why the Affordable Healthcare Act is a good thing. We need it. All of us need it.
The Affordable Healthcare Act is about all of us, not one politician. It is about taking care of all our neighbors, providing access to anyone who needs insurance, and closing loopholes and shortcuts that have been exploited for far too long.
I don’t like “Obamacare” because it is a name and it is about one politician. There is such hatred and animosity, or love and respect, toward one person, and healthcare is about more than Mr. Obama’s Presidency.
The beauty of the American political system is it takes more than one person. It takes more than one body of government. This law may not be perfect, but it has surpassed the test of time: the Legislative, Executive and Judicial branches of government have all passed judgment on this law. Let’s move on.
The Affordable Healthcare Act is a good place to start. Is it perfect? No. But we have to start somewhere, don’t we?
More later from todays Presidential press conference and why healthcare for Americans is good.
