Despite the desire of some to place their side of the aisle on a pedestal, both parties have brought us to this point in an effort to keep themselves in their career positions as “politician”. Subsidies were given to companies in order to help them succeed and become drivers of our economy and those subsidies were never repealed. Entitlements were given to people who for many reasons, most not of their making, were being left behind by society but those entitlements were not accompanied with education and training and common sense ways for people to get out of the system and now the system is as self perpetuating as is the entitlements given to the wealthy.Now.. a moment of sarcasm and facetiousness…..If we are going to repeal the ACA, let’s also repeal laws requiring car insurance and homeowner’s insurance. People are never going to get sick, people won’t have car accidents, and mortgaged homes won’t ever have fires or storm damage. Why is gov’t getting involved with these decisions of personal responsibility? Why should I have to pay three thousand dollars a year when nothing every happens to my house or car?Everyone who doesn’t die in their first accident or illness is going to go to a doctor. It is more likely that everyone reading this has been to a doctor than it is that they had to file a claim for a car accident or home incident. There will be exceptions, but the odds are…We need affordable health care. We cannot keep paying the “tax” placed on us and insurance companies by people who go to emergency rooms without health care. We need preventative health care to reduce ER visits and to educate people on how to prevent expensive health issues like diabetes, heart disease, etc.Our nation cannot afford to keep treating people on an emergency basis or for preventable diseases. It is too expensive and with intelligent planning, unnecessary.Respectfully,C.
