Lesson #3212 - Health Care
It's pretty simple. There was a study that indicated that for every 830 adults who gained health insurance, there was 1 fewer death a year. So if you craft a health care system that will cause 23 million people to lose their health insurance, then there are going to be some people who become post-existing. And that's before we start including other people who will have health insurance that just won't cover what people need it to anymore.
There's going to be a lot of post-existing, and maybe that's what they're counting on to make this law pass - if people aren't around later on, they can't vote against the death-mongers who passed it. So no repercussions.
Call your senators, especially if you live in a state where the threat of your vote would actually matter. Maybe you feel good about your health insurance right now - but you probably know someone who will be a lot worser off. Hope you're willing to care about them at the very least. Do it.
