Give Affordable Health Care Act a chance
August 17, 2012 · Updated 11:53 AM
There are many ways to define Socialism.
One definition is that anything financed or controlled by government is socialism or, some say, communism. It seems the people that don’t use some of these services think the services are socialism, but the ones they do use, like Medicare and Social Security, are not socialism.
They also wouldn’t want to give up roads, schools, etc. — they could be considered socialism — so why not give the new health care program a chance to work? The healthy people say we don’t need it because they won’t use it soon, but if it will improve our health system and save lives and keep some from declaring bankruptcy because of health problems then it needs a chance. They say most people are only one calamity away from needing help.
The Republicans hated most of the programs that Democrats wanted: Social Security, Medicare, Civil Rights, Women’s Rights, Voter Rights, and the list goes on. Most people are glad we have them now as I’m sure would be the case with the Affordable Health Care Act.
Does anyone really think that Mitt Romney or the Republican Congress care if the hard-working lower class have health insurance?
