Health Care: What is your take on it?

>> Wednesday, March 24, 2010

I am sure that almost everyone has heard something about the new Health Care Law. I want to know how you feel about it. What is your take on this Health Care? In a way we all knew that President Obama was going to make a change to the health care. It should not be a complete surprise, obviously, there are those that approve and agree with the new bill while there are others that oppose the bill completely. Everyone is subject to their opinion.

Before President Obama even took office he made it clear to the world that he was going to make some much needed changes (whether we need it or not). During his inauguration speech he made it crystal clear that he was going to take a step towards health care when he stated, “health care reform cannot wait, it must not wait, and it will not wait another year.” This statement was made last year, February of 2009. However, it may have taken over a year for legislation to approve; Obama stuck to his words and made a change. There was a preliminary version of the legislation/bill that passed on July 15 of 2009 by Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee (HELP). I could go on to list dates which lead up to this huge chaos that we are facing now. This just goes to say that, we should have known changes were going to occur in the Health Care field, we just didn’t know what day it would hit us or even acknowledge it. Now, the day has come and some people are reacting as if they have not been watching the news. I don’t watch the news but I read to keep updated. Once again, we are all open to our own opinion. Make sure you let me know what you think about this and how it “benefits” you.

There are two sides to every story and we must listen to decide for ourselves. It is not about the money. In the year 2014 the bill will take full affect and those that do not have insurance by that point and time will be fined. Fined? That is ridiculous. There are lawyers/attorneys that are against this and suing because of Constitutional rights. So, in November when it comes time for voting…you can then vote and make your voice heard. Maybe then you can make a change.

I won’t say what I think about the passing of this bill-I will try and keep an open mind, neutral as possible. I can assure there will be changes made in the bill…what bill/law hasn’t been altered?
