Mike Huckabee articulates ultimately what his party would do
Obamacare has been the law of the land for five years now. The GOP still has it in their crosshairs. Obamacare still does not have the popular support consummate to it’s value. For the millions of Americans with preexisting conditions, Obamacare has been a life savior. Yet the philosophy of those like Mile Huckabee has not changed. A few years ago he said the following.
Mike Huckabee: And a lot of this, it sounds so good, and it’s such a warm message to say we’re not gonna deny anyone from a preexisting condition. Look, I think that sounds terrific, but I want to ask you something from a common sense perspective. Suppose we applied that principle that you can just come along with whatever condition you have and we’re gonna cover you at the same cost we’re covering everybody else ’cause we wanna be fair. Okay, fine. Then let’s do that with our property insurance. And you can call your insurance agent and say, “I’d like to buy some insurance for my house.” He’d say, “Tell me about your house.” “Well sir, it burned down yesterday, but I’d like to insure it today.” And he’ll say “I’m sorry, but we can’t insure it after it’s already burned.” Well, no preexisting conditions. How would you like to be able to call your insurance agent for your car and say ‘I want you to insure my car.’ ‘Well tell me about your car.’ ‘Well it was a pretty nice vehicle until my sixteen year-old boy wrecked it yesterday. [He] totaled the thing out but I’d like to get it insurance so we can get it replaced.’ Now how much would a policy cost if it covered everything?
Obamacare enrollment is open again. Americans without insurance should visit the Affordable Care Act exchange and find an insurance plan they can afford. It is important for all Americans to disregard the naysayers. Politicians like Mike Huckabee will put their ideology over your health. Do not make the mistake and give them the levers to materially damage you and your family. Instead purchase insurance to ensure the well-being of your family and the viability of the Affordable Care Act. Continue to work towards assisting Obamacare morph into Medicare for all.
