Publisher’s Rant-Hell yeah, I’m for Obamacare


While Supreme Court Justices Scalia and Kennedy talk about broccoli as it relates to Obamacare, Roberts waffles back and forth on whether we should force someone to buy health care, and as usual Clarence Thomas asks no questions, the real message is missing.

Obamacare means never having to worry about getting sick and running up against a lifetime cap on insurance coverage. It gives parents the comfort of knowing their kids can stay on their insurance until they’re 26, and that a “pre-existing condition” like an ear infection will never compromise their child’s coverage.

It’s about ending the practice of letting insurance companies charge women 50 percent more — just because they’re women.

And Obamacare can save seniors hundreds of dollars a year on prescription drugs — and gives them access to preventive care that is saving their lives.

President Obama never lost sight of the fact that this reform is about people. People like his own mother, who spent the last years of her life fighting cancer — and fighting with insurance companies, too.

That shouldn’t happen. And because of Obamacare, it can’t.

So next time you hear someone railing against Obamacare, remember what they’re actually saying they want to take away.
