Since when is it a crime to care

Every time someone sneers as they say "Obamacare" they show just how ignorant a human being can be. Growing up never facing adversity does not entitle you to belittle someone else's trials and tribulations. And not READING the legislation, well, it's unforgiveable if you are going to criticize it.

Listen carefully to Mitt Romney when he says "up to 20 million people could lose their existing benefits." Translated, that could mean that nobody loses anything. It could mean one or one hundred will lose their current health insurance when it's replaced with another. It's misleading at best. Add to that the shot of him in front of the White House... well... very very far in front... and quite a few more interesting statements that don't mean a damn thing...hell why use facts when you have far more creative things to say...
Mitt Romney's ridiculous speech

Point is, the only people who will truly suffer under Obamacare are those who don't care about anyone but themselves. I've heard the dire predictions. Small businesses will stop hiring. No, they won't. They haven't been hiring in years. And if they have, they are successful enough, and probably smart enough, to "care" for their employees.

You see Care is the operative word here. Proponents of the Affordable Health Care Act actually care about other people, not just themselves. I know one individual who claims to oppose it, however, he is one of those who already does the right thing. He feels penalized for providing health care to his employees. He assumes everyone else does the same. But they don't. If they did, his rates would go down, not up. Spreading the risk. It's what insurance is about.

Bottom line, this is America. And it shouldn't cost an arm and a leg for decent healthcare. Literally, that's what it cost my brother. When you can't afford insurance, you can't get preventative care. Then you get sick. And you can't get insurance. And you get sicker. And then you depend on society to care for you, because you can't do it yourself. All because you didn't have access to affordable healthcare.

Today's decision was historic.

For millions of Americans, myself included, this isn't about politics. It's about our families. It's about our neighbors, our coworkers, our friends. It's about getting employers to act in the best interests of their employees. It's about getting those who selfishly refuse to pay their own way to at least be held accountable. Most of all it's about saving lives. Because the only alternative to health insurance is burial insurance. And for those who listen to Mitt Romney long enough, maybe it's actually the more attractive option. So stop listening to political bullshit and start understanding what today's decision by the Supreme Court means for all of us.
