After reading the bilge that Ted Nugent wrote in the Washington Times today, I felt anger first, confusion second which turned back into anger. What the hell is wrong with our nation? It seems that since we have elected an African-American as our president, the Republican party has lost it's damn mind. Yes I am playing the race card here, because frankly it is real.
I look sane Next to Ted Nugent.
What I can't understand is why so many people are having a hard time wrapping their heads around the Affordable Care Act also known as Obamacare. This is not a socialist program. It is a program that designed to protect us and our youth from the insurance industry. Right now if someone has cancer their insurance can drop their coverage and cause the patient to pick up the tab for all of their care. If they survive, they will be saddled with debt in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. While the insurance company who has been receiving money from this person for their coverage walks away. This is a bill designed to help families with children who are born with illness or develop illness over time. This child's family will not be told that their child will not be covered because they suffer from a pre-exisiting condition.
Does this shirt and head dress make me look racist?
Our nation has become so blinded by hatred for each other that we cannot see how this bill is designed to help people. Sure it may make our taxes go up a percentage. Is that a bad thing to help the ones in need? We have lost our way as a nation and It makes me sick. I hope that one of these people that are railing against the ACA, that they have a child refused insurance or that they themselves are denied. Until then they will not understand how important this bill really is.
