You can just look under my mini-profile to see where I live. I make no secret of the fact that I am a proud Alabamian. And true, Alabama did not
expand Medicaid. Why were they required to? Because someone in the Federal government asked?
The Affordable Care Act, ACA, otherwise known as Obamacare, was written and passed by a Democratic Congress on an almost perfect party-line vote. It
was highly touted, pushed, and signed by Barrack Hussein Obama, the 44th President if the United States. He owns it, along with the Democratic Party
in general. If it was going to rely on Medicaid, it should have nationalized Medicaid, instead of relying on 50 other people to cover its
inadequacies. That is a half-assed solution if there ever was one.
That said, Bob Bentley is under investigation for Impeachment, which I wholly and rabidly support. It has nothing to do with Medicaid; He has abused
his power, and needs to be either imprisoned or run out of the state. He's got an 'R' next to his name... does it sound like I care?
I don't even care, really, how bad it hurts me. I care more how it's hurting others. I'm redneck; my last heart attack, my left ascending artery was
100% clogged... zero blood flow... for an hour and a half before they got me to the operating room. I walked to the ambulance, scooted my own butt
onto the operating table, and walked out a few days later under my own power, cigarette at the ready. Others aren't as tough... fragile, even... and
can't take what I shrug off.
At no time during that little episode did I even consider calling for insurance. I needed a doctor, not an insurance company. Had an insurance agent
tried to help, there would have likely been a fight.
The cause? My inherent desire to swallow large quantities of grease. I'm the reason my triglyceride count was 528. Me. I don't blame restaurants,
grocery stores, or anyone else. That's what adults do: take responsibility. Children and cowards try to blame others.
Be a man, not a child. Accept that the Democrats pushed through Obamacare, by themselves, and have celebrated it at every turn since. Otherwise, you
have little credibility and are losing ground with every post IMO.
