Few losers in reform
The only losers today are the commercial insurance companies and the Republican politicians who are paid well to represent them.
Health insurance will be available and affordable. If you choose not to take advantage of it, you will be taxed to cover your uninsured costs. There are no criminal penalties.
People without insurance are already using the healthcare system. There is not going to be a huge surge: just a reduction in bad-debt charity for caregivers.
I’ve been in healthcare for 33 years. I’ve yet to see a Republican even try to address the problems the status quo brings. Going back to status quo is a fool’s answer. The system is broken and must be reformed.
Ten percent of the American people are without health insurance. These are working people who don’t qualify or won’t ask for Medicaid. Those of us fortunate enough to be living the American dream should not begrudge basic needs to those who are less fortunate. Steve Stowell-Virtue
