Why are folks upset about the Affordable Health Care Act when it benefits everyone? It will make health care accessible to those in need.
One can’t lose coverage because of a pre-existing condition. One cannot be denied coverage. Each state will have health insurance pools to help those in need purchase the required health insurance.
There are many shortsighted governors, Kansas’ included, who have refused millions of dollars to create and operate those pools.
We are required to have car insurance upon purchasing and licensing a car, although many let it lapse and those of us with insurance end up footing the bill. We are required to have homeowners insurance when purchasing a home. The mortgage company will not allow that to lapse. So what’s wrong with requiring folks to purchase health insurance?
The burden is lifted off taxpayers, and insurance companies make more money.
Perhaps it should be called the “Affordable Health Insurance” Act. Maybe then folks would get on board.
We’ve all lost dear ones because they lacked health insurance. If the Affordable Health Care Act saves even one life otherwise lost because of a lack of coverage, it is well worth it.
