The health care or obamacare law has become a huge issue. It is the main topic of discussion on news channels and among the people. The Republicans want to get repeal while Democrats object it. Why is there much ado about the health care reform?
Do we not need a health care reform? As per the studies, only one percent of population in America does not have a health insurance. According to the experts, only this one percent will need to pay the penalty for not having a medical insurance. So, how is it a tax raise for the entire middle class?
Secondly, the health care reform makes it necessary for all the citizens to have insurance. Isn't it good? Otherwise, they would end up paying a bigger amount in case they require medical help. Moreover, the Obama health care reform intends to make health insurance much affordable. Rather than paying the penalty, it is cheaper to buy medical insurance.
One doctor visit costs $300 or more without insurance! So, isn't it beneficial if people do buy a health insurance? When Massachusetts can have such a law, why is it bad to implement it for the entire country? Why do we think of it as a federal intervention? Even if it is an intervention, it is with good intentions, right.
Vice President Biden also supports Obama’s health care reform. Biden also mentioned Obama’s plan to reduce the income tax for those who have an income of less than $250,000. This means that people can think of health insurance and not worry about additional taxes. It is during Obama’s time that we see more impetus on education, health and employment. Government is taking steps to get more people into higher education. The government is also trying to improve the employment conditions and the health reform is a major step to provide health care to all citizens. It is time we put behind politics and think of people.
