Re: If ACA is repealed
It's amazing to me that so many people seem to think that before the ACA they didn't pay for everyone else's health care.
News flash: your did. Until you refuse care and turn people away from the ER you're paying.
And health care is something we all eventually need, so it's in everyone's interest to contribute.
So the question is how best to manage the damages.
Besides, we all pay for others for lots of stuff. I have two kids and the family rate for me is the same as for people that choose to have 8 kids. Why should I subsidize that?
Maybe I'm morally opposed to paying for people who drink their liver to death or people who stuff their faces and get diabetes. Can I opt out of contributing?
Nope, because I'm part of society.
Because when you live in and participate in society you contribute to the greater good.
There's a little to much hooray for me and screw you going on in the Republican party.
