It's next to impossible to determine the effects of one decision over another. This is why we can't just listen to our neighbor, who has likely listened to his neighbor and - well you get the picture. Listening to commercials is not a reliable source to be informed. Start here to find what a Bill contains. Website: thomas.loc.gov/ Also look up voting records. Choose those whose reputation& opinions you trust. Ask them what prompted them to vote the way they did. When issues spark heated debate, the roots go deep and are complicated. You don't make your decisions with grab-bag mentality, you won't want to go to the polls and base your vote on uninformed choices either.
Great article. It is right on target!
I think that if you just look at the surface of Obamacare you may come to your conclusions. Look deeper at the unintended consequences if not intended consequences by some, further down the road . The U.S. cannot not afford Obamacare. Is that not obvious if one can have the courage to face it? What about the trillions in debt that are increasing at an increasing rate. Obamacare is full of many 'free" things that will have to be paid for. Will that result in poorer care, less innovative procedures and medicines? What happens to the members then? What happens to their good paying jobs? What happens to credit unions when their revenues cannot no longer support their mission? Many scoff at these questions. Our house is divided now and built on sand, ignoring it does have consequences.
