Obamacare: Buy our insurance or else;maybe not

Now I don't usually rant of politics. I have so say a couple of things about Obamacare.I am glad the supreme court is taking this up.

How can a government by the people and for the people can make the people buy health insurance?

I agree that everyone sooner or later will need insurance but to force Americans to buy it is signs of socialism.

I think Canada has it right with their health care. Here's pros and cons to Canada health care system

Pro: Universal Access to Health Care for All

Canada's heath care system ensures that a basic level of coverage is available to all who meet minimum requirements of residency. This means that students, unemployed individuals, pensioners and disabled are covered irrespective of their ability to work. Pregnancies, baby wellness and related health care is usually covered by the health care net.

Con: Priority Assessment Means Some Must Wait Longer

Non-emergency surgeries, tests and treatments are assessed and handled on a priority basis. Specialists visits are also scheduled according to priority. Those with life-threatening conditions, senior citizens and urgent needs get priority status, sometimes resulting in long waits for other patients.

Pro: Landmark Public Education Programs to Reduce Costs

Many provinces have developed social programs to educate the public on injury prevention and other safety issues. Landmark health programs that have helped to increase public awareness of health risks are often funded by government grants directed toward minimizing or reducing health care costs. Examples of such programs and studies include back injury awareness campaigns, social and health care support for disabled populations, and programs aimed at increasing awareness by seniors of the need to use canes and other assistive devices.

Con: Critics Argue Fee Limits are Out of Sync with Cost of Living

In an effort to keep health care costs down, the government puts a cap on what health care providers can charge. Physicians argue that these caps can restrict their earning potential and limit the providers' ability to cover costs, pay for their student loans and keep pace with the cost of living.

Pro: Comprehensive Coverage for Veterans in Elder Years

Health care for veterans is covered by the federal government. These services are not limited to service-related injuries and illnesses as they are in the United States. This means that the veteran receives more comprehensive health care and social services that includes nursing home care and other treatments in elder years.

Con: Rural Populations May Not Get Equal Distribution of Care

Health care dollars are distributed according to provincial demographics, which means that rural areas often receive less funding than large metropolitan areas. Critics complain as a result, that rural health facilities are improved at a slower rate, and that the lack of dollars in the rural areas results in a shortage of doctors and specialists. Rural residents often have to travel long distances to see specialists within their health care districts.

Maybe instead of forcing Americans to buy health insurance which looks like the law is on life support in the Supreme court and it looks like they are ready to pull the plug. We should adopt a plan like Canada where the health care is paid for by taxes. And make plans affordable by all people from the bottom of the scale to the top of the scale.

I think we can handle something like that instead of being forced to buy health insurance. Hopefully the Supreme court will pull the plug on this law and let it die.

Call your congressmen and tell them to come up with a better health care plan as we are gonna need it eventually .
