The Great Health Care Reform Debate
Oh great. Here we go. More politics. More debates. More arguing. No seriously though. If you know me, you know that I’m not a massive political guy. I don’t pay attention as much as I probably should, and probably don’t care as much as I probably should. Sorry about that, to everyone who I just offended.
This morning on our morning walk Kristin and I started talking politics. One thing that came up was this whole Health Care Reform thing. Seems like most people that ‘hate’ Mr. Obama, also think his “ObamaCare” is a terrible idea and will ruin the world. The other side thinks Mr. Obama is great and (I assume) agrees with what he’s doing. Then his wife blogs about it and it’s a big confusing mess.
Now, if I’m honest I haven’t really given the subject it’s due attention, or even really thought about it at all, but it got me thinking. What’s the deal with this thing? I mean what are the nuts and bolts of this plan? What are we getting ourselves into? What’s the good the bad and the ugly with this plan. Does anyone know? And I’m not talking about the slanted Republican, or the slanted Democratic views, but what’s actually happening?
Then we found this video and it sort of explains it, but again, I feel a slight Democratic slant even from this ‘objective’ video. Unless it truly is a good idea:
So there’s the deal. I wanna know. What are your thoughts on this health care thing? What’s the negatives? What’s the benefits? Do you care?
And for real, don’t turn the comments into an “I hate (insert candidate)” stream. Then later we can talk about Mormonism.
