Health Care Reform Must Become a Reality – Now

With more than 45 million Americans uninsured, health care reform must become a reality. No matter what the obstacle, Americans deserve access to adequate affordable health coverage. Conservatives are trying to scare everyone into thinking the health care reform issue is dead. However, now more than ever, Americans all across the nation need to contact their elected representatives and demand health care reform now. No matter how difficult or challenging the process, health reform must pass. People with severe medical conditions should not have to worry about possibly declaring bankruptcy because of an unforeseen accident or ailment. Others should not be denied access to necessary care because of a pre-existing condition. Insurance companies should not pick and choose which Americans get health coverage and which do not. Hospitals should not be allowed to charge $50 for an aspirin. Much work and discussion has already gone into trying to resolve the health care issue and it would be stupid and irresponsible for politicians to turn back now. Americans, of all political preferences, deserve a reasonable, working, and fair health care system. If the topic is taken off the table now, Americans may never see another opportunity for positive health care reform.

  1. Eileen G. Curras Negron says:

    The common sense should dictate in the United States but the political agenda has stopped common sense. I agree that with more than 45 million Americans uninsured, health care reform must become a reality but I guess that we have to bring to reality Republican who have refuse to accept the facts. The obstacle here is a political agenda that has used fear to even the Media Companies and everybody. Americans deserve access to adequate affordable health coverage and conservatives are trying to scare everyone into thinking that health care reform issue is dead. Now more than ever, Americans all across the nation need to contact heir elected representatives and demand health care reform now. The fact that the economy is hitting bottom and health care reform must pass. People with severe medical conditions should not have to worry about possibly declaring bankruptcy because of an unforeseen accident or ailment. The fact is that Americans are been denied to access necessary care because of a pre-existing condition. I had to make a decision to go back to Puerto Rico where MS is consider a catastrophic condition but the island lack of proper transportation services. The decision of legislators to back up the insurance companies should not be allowed or to pick and choose which Americans get health coverage and which do not. To begin hospitals should not be allowed to charge $50 for aspirin. Much work and discussion has already gone into trying to resolve the health care issue and it would be irresponsible for politicians to ignore the issue. Americans, of all political preferences, deserve a reasonable, working, and fair health care system. If the topic is taken off the table now, Americans may never see another opportunity for positive health care reform.
