In the U.S. health insurance is the largest expense we incur next to putting a roof over our heads. I was one of the first to use the Affordable Care Act, and while it definitely needs to evolve, you can go online and read thousands of first-hand stories about people whose lives were saved because they hadn’t had insurance in years and were finally able to see a doctor. We are the only “civilized” country in the world that doesn’t consider access to affordable and good healthcare, a right, rather than a privilege. As someone very wise once said in a group discussion, “I never want to be that person.”
As I’m typing this congress just voted, once again, to gut the Affordable Care Act, in place of a plan that would leave approximately 95% of the country screwed. You exempted yourselves from participating in the same healthcare the rest of us utilize. I wonder why?
Fingers crossed we have enough people in the senate with their heads screwed on properly so that this doesn’t move forward. And if for some reason if they’re on the wrong side of this decision, I will personally be contacting the ACLU and will be the first to sign-up for the class action lawsuit.
So I humbly say, to the 217 congress “people” who voted for this because you’re putting your job over human beings, go fuck yourself.
