There is so much misinformation on the web, on main stream media and on social media about the Affordable Care Act, that I do have at least a little patience for those who are struggling with finding the truth. But some of what I am hearing and reading is just downright mean-spirited. Change is hard. But we are Americans, and we can get through this.
I want all children to have access to affordable health care. I want those who are unemployed because of layoffs or medical problems and those with other special circumstances to have access to health care. I understand that prevention costs less than medical intervention. I vote.
As our President said earlier today, the fight to provide affordable health care for all Americans was not simply about a website. We can not allow a website to defeat us.
"But we did not wage this long and contentious battle just around a website," Obama said. "We waged this battle to make sure that millions of Americans, in the wealthiest nation on earth, finally have the same chance to get the same security of quality, affordable health care as anybody else."
Let’s be patient and supportive and allow the process to work.
