Obamacare or the “Affordable Care Act” is a new “Act” that the U.S. has employed once again, but what is it really accomplishing? Are you saving money? Is it a better system than what was before? How so? Is covering people because of previous disabilities really beneficial to a health care system? Why can’t a revamped free market solve the crises of the health care and insurance conundrum?
I was thinking about that country I used to live in – The United States of America. I left before the Affordable Care Act became underway, but it got me thinking about whether or not it is really purposeful.
I mean, no offense to the U.S. as a whole, but how is worrying about health insurance solving all of the problems in the U.S.? It’s not like health insurance is even the smidge of the issue in the “freedom land”. Then again, let’s talk about “freedom” some more. Freedom with obvious limitations, that is…
Aside from requiring you to pay for health insurance by law or to be penalized, is this system exploiting your freedom and rights? First of all, if you’re required to have health insurance for your own body and will be penalized without, it’s as equivalent as saying, “You will be charged money if you don’t insure yourself”. But with freedom and rights, shouldn’t I or anyone have the ultimate decision on whether or not I choose to insure MYSELF and WHEN? The only thing I can agree with is health insurance mandates for little kids (13 and under, perhaps), but that’s about it. Forcing people to pay more money to get insurance, and charging them money without it? This is the start of the shackles breaking … get ready for anarchism. And get ready for Hillary 2016, when we’ll all be penalized for not having breathing insurance.
