Can you imagine cautiously living your life by not injuring yourself or sitting next to someone with a slight cough? Now imagine an impromptu visit to the local clinic, sitting on the table while the community doctor is reading your test results. “Sorry, but you have cancer. “ You can’t afford cancer, not only are you youthful, but you don’t have insurance. Why is it so difficult for this country to rule in favor of health care for all?
If the United States of America prides itself on equality for all…shouldn’t this entitle health benefits.
The Obama administration asked the Supreme Court on Wednesday to hear a case concerning the 2010 health care overhaul law. The development, which came unexpectedly fast, makes it all but certain that the court will soon agree to hear one or more cases involving challenges to the law, with arguments by the spring and a decision by June, in time to land in the middle of the 2012 presidential campaign.
“Throughout history, there have been similar challenges to other landmark legislation, such as the Social Security Act, the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act, and all of those challenges failed,” the statement continued. “We believe the challenges to the Affordable Care Act — like the one in the 11th Circuit — will also ultimately fail and that the Supreme Court will uphold the law.”
The health care laws will offer insurance to more than 30 million people, by expanding Medicaid, which will provide federal agencies to help lower and middle-income households buy private coverage. More importantly, denying coverage based on pre-existing conditions will no longer exist.
Affordable health care should be a right for everyone. It’s not fair for the “land of the free” to suffer due to someone else selfishness. The United States is the only developed nation without a universal health care system that provides care for all.
The result is that 47 million people in the United States lack health coverage. It’s one reason the U.S. ranks 29th in the world in terms of life expectancy and at or near the bottom of most international health care comparisons.
It’s time to take note from the universal health care in Europe. It’s health care system provides high quality health care to all its residents at a much lower cost than what the people of the United States spend on health care.
As we, Fabulous and Money Savvy™, speak on leaving a legacy, it’s explanatory that this reform will allow people to save money and provide a better and healthy future for this country.
