I was really gonna go to sleep, but I noticed that some brothers and sisters are actually happy about the new healthcare implementation. But does the healthcare plan REALLY help anyone?
This plan was originally to implement a system of universal healthcare. This means, it's very similar to the system used in the UK, Canada, and wherever else the British Commonwealth is. It's very legalistic, and kinda goes against the ideas of a capitalist economy. The media might tell you otherwise, but this new plan is actually about first come first serve. What does that mean for you? It means that if someone's having a heart attack and needs immediate attention, hospitals now have the right to put you on hold (even if the person in front of you only has a minor cold). No one will be allowed to pay any amount to get immediate attention, no matter how severe the illness may be.
And if you chose to stick with your private insurance company, by 2014, you may see your insurance bill increase tremendously.
The most "evil" part of this scheme is that the president and ALL of congress is EXEMPTED from this law. That means that if Obama should (God-forbid) need an immediate liver transplant by next week, he'll get it by next week (no questions asked and NO WAIT!) They're basically saying with this that "our lives come before yours." But they make this plan sound so good! Why don't they go by the same law if it's so great?
This disturbing plan exists in Canada as well and is the reason many Canadian residents put aside savings so that if a family member gets severely ill, they would come to the United States to get IMMEDIATE attention. Guess what? TOO BAD, THAT'S NOT HAPPENING ANY LONGER!
Many Americans these days complain that we're the only industrialized nation that doesn't guarantee health care. Wake up guys! We shouldn't guarantee it.. having health care is a PRIVILEGE, NOT A RIGHT. Your health is personal. Leave the government out of it.
Here's my take on the recent and biggest headlines. Feel free to comment. I know I usually post Christian based things up on here, but I think this matter is really important for Christians as well to engage in, argue for or against, and further investigate. We're called to shine the light of Jesus in ALL aspects of our lives.
