We keep hearing that Obamacare is coming to the United States, but no one is taking the time to tell us what it all means. What it comes down to is this. People with medicaid and medicare, people covered on their parents plans and those with insurance through their employers are good to go. It means that wealthier Americans are being forced to help their less fortunate counterparts so that everyone has access to medical care. It means that no one has to die just because they are poor and cannot afford treatment. So what is all of the fuss about? It is solely because people do not even know what Obamacare is! Many feel it's not about the law it is about the man who created it, and our country is suffering from this intense prejudice and unacceptance of a black man in office.
The government shutdown is in many ways a gun being held on the American people and republicans in congress have their finger in the trigger while telling the president if you do not give us what we want we will shoot. Why? Is this because they are afraid to let him succeed least their be another black president someday? I mean, it is pretty obvious it is no longer about America or even politics. I for one hope he does not budge or negotiate with these terrorists calling themselves congress.
Many things will be affected if the government shuts down as time goes on from real estate to public assistance, schools and Social Security / Disability checks, meat inspections and a lot more. We will be left wide open for many catastrophes on many different levels, and all because they cannot pull the puppet strings of our Nations Leader.
The Tea Party thinks a government shutdown is a good idea, imagine that.
Good job Obama, and shame on any of you who do not want to help those less fortunate than you. I stand behind my president for the principle if nothing else, and I appreciate a bill that says if my child is stricken with a disease she will get good healthcare and have a fighting chance.
When Americans see what Obamacare really is and what congress is really doing, they will come to appreciate it as well. Wake up people, it has been implemented for a while, and it is working. They said Medicare was a bad thing when it began too, now look at how many it helps. Give Obamacare a chance to do what it was made to do, and lets move on to other things like pre-k and education for our children.
