|First of all Howard, Thank you for your service from a former SSGT (canon cocker 13A).|
My opinion on this entire situation is Obama care has nothing to do with healthcare, it is health insurance, and nothing more than a Ponzi scheme, at best re-distribution of wealth.
ACA does NOTHING to improve care, it is a socialistic policy and has nothing to do with care.
The government has no business interfering with the Insurance industry plain and simple.
No, Republican values have not changed, but Democratic values have (IMO.)
The Liberal's are driving us toward Socialism at an ever increasing pace.
When the Pilgrim's came her, it was a basically Socialistic environment. It didn't work then and it won't work now. It hasn't worked ANYWHERE.
IMO Democracy is based on personal responsibility. You and you alone are responsible for yourself and your family. You have the opportunity to better yourself and pass along to your offspring certain ethics. you can accept those responsibilities or reject them.
It's up to YOU, not the government.
And, just as a side note, I had a good friend, grew up in Cabrini Green (google it) probably the worst start you could possibly imagine. He and his wife were very successful people.
I will now step down from my soapbox.
