It's a hell of a lot easier to blow something up than to build a replacement.
Especially when you don't care about a replacement.
Fact is, we – you, me, taxpayers, governments – cannot afford our current health care “system.” And it is getting more expensive every day.
Congress and the President are continuing their efforts to weaken and hobble the ACA, and they are generally succeeding. Without enforcement of the individual mandate, fewer young folks are getting insurance, increasing premium for us oldsters. The number of Americans without health insurance is up, health care costs are rising, and future Medicare costs are escalating.
Have you seen anything from Congress or the President that gives you any hope they have any plan?
These politicians aren't interested in governing, don't care about your costs or your kids' debt, and hope you don't pay attention. They have no political courage, no interest in doing anything that might cost them the next election.
What does this mean for you?
