I refuse to jump on a bandwagon in this divisive, totally dysfunctional, deliberately manipulated political debate about the healthcare mandate!
I do not understand anyone who defends a mandate that requires individual citizens to throw their hard earned money away in a system that would be better named "sickcare!" To legally require people to participate in health insurance "for profit" is immoral in my book! From the beginning I have stood for a system that would resemble Medicare for all. The public option was never even given a vote. All of the aspects of so called "Obamacare" that are most unpopular were in FACT originally Republican ideas. First they proposed it, now they are against it! This is all insanity. Where is rational thought in this debate? In the latest polls the aspects of the new healthcare law, that actually care about real human beings over profit, are overwhelmingly popular!
I say throw out the mandate! Good riddance! In reality it was simply a windfall for the health insurance industry, which in my opinion should die a quick death. Their only purpose is to stand between the payer and the services required and steal the money! That is why so many intelligent people advocated for a single payer system.
READ MY LIPS: "As a culture, as a country, as a political system, we are acting pathetic!"
Turn off the television and turn on your mind! The real enemy is vulture capitalism that allows corporations to profit from people's pain! The real enemy is a system that forces people to choose between health and having a roof over their heads and food on the table. Money is the root of all evil if we allow it to be God! We need to focus! The constitution was not written to protect profits, it was written to protect PEOPLE!
