No affordable health care means no way to pursue the American dream.
The great debate over the existence of affordable health insurance quotes and the wisdom of the Affordable Health Care Act rages on. Each side feels like the evidence supports their position. However, if you step back from the debate and spend time doing some research, a realization will hit you.
If you don’t have affordable health care, brought to you by insurance companies offering affordable health insurance quotes to attract customers, then you cannot guarantee you are viable and healthy enough to pursue happiness and liberty, according to the Constitution. In short, for those who think the Act is unconstitutional, think again. No affordable health care, no way to pursue the American dream.
Sure, we need to be able to pay for our health insurance, and sometimes that is a difficult thing to do given the state of the nation’s economy. However, ask yourself this question: If the U.S. was not spending millions to billions on deporting illegal immigrants or interfering in other people’s wars, how much of that money could be invested in the health care system? The answer may shock you.
With insurance exchanges, lower premium prices and so forth, the load on emergency rooms should be reduced. Too many people use the E.R. like it was a doctor’s office, and because a hospital is mandated to care for the sick and injured, they provide service. Often though, they go unpaid. If Americans have access to affordable health insurance, they will have the peace of mind of knowing a good portion of their bills are paid when submitting a claim.
Despite the prevailing attitude by many consumers who think they don’t use health insurance, therefore they don’t want to pay for it, it is good common sense to be insured. Think hard about this point of view. We pay for house and car insurance “just in case,” and yet, people are more precious than a car or house, which can be replaced. We cannot be replaced if something happens to us.
Bottom line? Health insurance is not a luxury. It is not there just for the heck of it. It has a purpose. It protects those who need help in a medical situation. If you or a family member is diabetic, has end stage renal disease, heart disease or asthma, you know first-hand how expensive health care is when you’re not insured. Under the Act, you have the chance to protect yourself and your loved ones, for a lower price.
