Would You Have Healthcare Coverage?
If it wasn't for Obama implementing the Affordable Care Act and forcing everyone to carry insurance, would you have health coverage?
I, personally, don't think I would have health coverage. I rarely feel the need to go to the doctor and even when I should I'm more likely to hold off and let my body take care of itself then pay a doctor big bucks to give me amoxicillin. Having health coverage now means nothing. They are just finally getting the money I didn't shove out by not seeking healthcare professionals. The premiums are ludicrous, hundreds of dollars. The benefits that come with the costly premiums are nothing. Deductibles are expensive enough to throw you into debt quicker then a doctor can even treat a simple condition. It seriously frustrates me and there is nothing we can do to change it. I'm all for Universal Healthcare like Canada has. Why hasn't this been implemented here? It would save our taxes and put them to better use somewhere we could actually USE it. Even if it's something that can't be done overnight, I would sleep better at night knowing this ridiculous expense isn't going to last forever.
