We have been misinformed by the mainstream media, the Right Wing, and the Establishment Blue Dog Democrats. Please listen and distribute this short segment from my Politics Done Right radio show where I explain some fundamental realities about Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) and how it relates to us all.
The truths about health insurance & Obamacare
Obamacare is a market solution to our health insurance problems. It is a Republican plan implemented by Mitt Romney in Massachusetts and designed by the Heritage Foundation. The reason the Republican politicians have not been able to come up with a replacement plan over the last seven years is that it is their plan implemented by a Democrat. The failures of Obamacare that need fixing is not unexpected. Obamacare was just a start. It was always known that a market solution is by definition more inefficient. Monies going to profits are monies not going to pay a health care bill or increased premiums.
Ask yourself a question. Why do we need hundreds of insurance companies and plans to pay a medical bill? Why pay for all that complexity, that overhead to pay a bill. Wouldn't it be easier to have one entity paying every medical bill? It isn't rocket science. The reason why is that those hundreds of corporations see it as easy money. They collect premiums take some off the top for CEOs, shareholders, advertising friends, and more. The rest then pay a bill. They do something called risk management to attempt to insure only healthy people to make sure they can keep more of your premiums.
Republicans are attempting to take us back to policies that will move us closer to the health insurance failures we had before instead of the repairing Obamacare are migrating to the more efficient Medicare for All, a single payer system. Please watch the short video and share.
