I must admit that I think the ACA is messed up. But I understand why they tried to do it. We spend more per capita than any other country on health care and rank 38th in quality of health care.
We stood by while out son lost his eyesight because he could not get health care.
He tried and was turned down, time after time for years. His eyesight could have been saved with access to medical care. Now that he is blind, he is eligible and the government will spend thousands trying to restore his sight.
I have friends in Canada and the UK, and they don't understand why we don't get health care here like they do. In spite of what conservatives tell you, most of those people are happy with their health care.
I don't have health insurance and I know it is shortening the amount of time I will have with my wife, kids and grandkids, but I am only one of millions doing without. I worry about the young people whose lives are shortened by the lack of health care. And the ACA will not help many of us.
Are we really so callous that we will let people continue to die due to lack of health care?
