They’ve had their chance

From page A6 | December 18, 2013 | 4 Comments

In the Dec. 12 issue of The Enterprise, a commentary stated that we must give the current dismantling of the health care system a real chance, as if 3 1/2 years isn’t giving it a running start.

Unfortunately, the additional year the author requests is more than millions can afford or want. Countless more will be thrown to the wolves as the employer mandate is reinstated.

The “give it a chance”commentary makes a great companion piece to Barack Obama’s “if you like your health care insurance you can keep it … period” and Nancy Pelosi’s “we have to pass this legislation so we can see what’s in it.”

    I'd be more open to an argument to stop something if a better alternative was proposed. Why system do you propose that would enable more Americans to have adequate health care? Or do you think health care is only for rich people?

    There seems to be an assumption by many people that there was an urgent need to act immediately. Mr. "Got sollutions?" and others seem to defend a bad law by saying something had to be done. We have lived with our healthcare system pretty well for decades with pretty good success. There are problems which should be addressed but it never was a case of Obamacare or nothing. As I've said before, inaction can be better than the wrong action. I believe this is the case with Obamacare.

    Good questions Got sollutions. I think the status quo defenders would answer that healthy people as well as rich people should get the lion’s share of healthcare. How else can insurance companies keep their profits and executive compensation at the levels they are accustomed to?
