So this Obamacare ruling by the Supreme Court will effectively create some sort of healthcare for millions of Americans who would otherwise have none: that’s a good thing, right? Apparently, for some, it’s wrong.
Ok, let’s get one thing straight.
Americans hate being told what to do. This goes against Americans’ other great love of wanting to be defined (“I’m a Democrat!” or “I’m a Republican!” without thinking of anything in the middle). What this healthcare bill does is have people not die for about the price of streaming-only Netflix. Wouldn’t you be OK with paying a few dollars a month to have people not die and keep living?
What this boils down to, really, is the peacocking of rich (and stupid) Americans who love nothing more than the “fuck you, I’ve got mine” mentality of hoarding as much money as possible so that others will suffer. As long as the rich (and stupid) can’t see them, it’s not a big deal to them. This is twisted, asinine thinking.
Healthcare is a right. You should have the right not to be bankrupted by illness – now, finally, America is one step closer to being the greatest country in the world again.
