Let’s Talk About HEALTHCARE

I have had Obamacare for the past 3 years and it has been a blessing.  I wouldn’t call it perfect.  It was sometimes a bureaucratic nightmare but to be fair most of that had nothing to do with Obamacare and everything to do with the reality of dealing with Insurance companies today.  Our entire healthcare system has become incredibly time consuming and convoluted.  The Obamacare itself was pretty great: low cost premiums, affordable co-pays and prescriptions, low deductibles – exactly the kind of health care every American deserves. It had been awhile since I had had health insurance and for me it was great to finally be able to get some treatment.  I was able to get regular check ups, see specialists when I needed, and even have surgery without breaking the bank. And for the first time in years I no longer worried about what I would do if I got sick of needed to go to the hospital.  It was peace of mind that cannot be overstated.  We all deserve that.  Almost every other country in the world has figured this out, there is no reason we can’t.

I support affordable health care.  The ACA has had a tremendous impact on millions of Americans who would not have been able to get affordable health care otherwise.  It was meant to be a framework to be built upon and more work needs to be done. We urgently need to address the unreasonable cost of healthcare and medication in our country and the ACA is a step in the right direction.  Americans deserve affordable, accessible, high quality health care.  We shouldn’t have to worry about an accident or an illness bankrupting our family.
