Although I'm no Republican nor Democrat or anything else (the Tea Party will never have my vote either)...I must say that the compelling speech
Senator Ted Cruz gave before the house this evening was quite compelling.
I did however, think that the AHCA (Affordable Health Care Act) was okay "at first". Now after the past two weeks witnessing our governments shutdown
and hearing both sides or should I say, opinions from a three party side, I have learned a lot.
The biggest thing I learned is that none of them (senate and house) can agree or find a solution or compromise (negotiate was an extremely dirty word
used in this case IMO). The next biggest thing I learned, were all of the neat tidbits to the AHCA. I will not go through them one by one because I
don't have the time or patience. I will however, say that although my mind is now considering wether Healthcare Reform is reforming anything, I have
been awakened to the fact that there are some very serious issues associated with this law that we all need to consider or in many cases
Maybe, just maybe Mr. Ted Cruz has "some" valid points. I'm not going to attempt a quick draw and call for repeal, because I personally do not
completely understand the law in its entirety. I am however, because of Ted Cruz and other politicians (on all three sides) going to look into this
law with a couple of friends and a couple of magnifying glasses.
Let me end by saying, I didn't post this to sway any political side as I take none. I simply want to look into this in depth and find the
flaws....find what will and will not work.
Hopefully, ATS members and non members reading, will do the same.
Any input or information regrading this post will be very helpful.
Thank you for reading
