    Learn The Truth About Obamacare

     
    Healthcare exchanges open on October 1st, 2013. The Right Wing Tea  Party Republican misinformation and lying campaign is already in high gear.  According to many polls the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is at its lowest  level of support. What law not in full effect could tolerate this onslaught of  lies and misinformation aided by a corporate media? Not any. While many oppose Obamacare for strict ideological reasons on both the left  and the right, the bulk of the opposition is confusion. When 60+% of the  citizenry are confused about a law, no opinion can be considered valid. Yet, if  that law is better than the present, it is safe to assume that support would run  more positive than negative. Ideological opposition on the Right comes from the Randian false believe in  full self-sufficiency and laissez-faire capitalism. It is an immoral point of  view that is vogue among Right Wing politicians trying to destroy America’s  social construct. Of course most of those who believe in this ideology could not  really live in it. They neither have the resources or aptitude to do so.Ideological opposition on the Left comes from the mathematical fact that a  single payer system void of profits is the most efficient form of ‘health  insurance’. Moreover, most on the Left rightfully view healthcare as a human  right. It is inhumane that healthcare is based on one’s ability to pay. It is  inhumane that one’s entire future could be dictated by the chance of becoming  ill. In that light, while Obamacare is not the best option, it is the best option  that was attainable given a corrupt Congress and a corrupt political process. It  is imperative that Americans enroll in the exchanges. It is imperative that  Obamacare as a first step in our healthcare reform is marginally successful. While it is not spoken about much, Obamacare is the first step on a path toward a single payer system. Those on the left that are  upset that it isn’t a single payer system already must stay in the game. They  must continue to fight for single payer. That said, they should not be fighting  against this law because it was not their ideal or because in the initial stages  of this law private insurance companies will still reap an unearned profit from  skimming. Battles are won either incrementally or revolutionarily. The second  option is simply not in the current American DNA. As such all must play the long  game. HR 676 will be a closer reality if Obamacare is effected. Republican Governors that refused to setup exchanges may have actually aided  that process by having the Federal Government run their exchanges. Simply having  Americans start their healthcare choices at one website (http://healthcare.gov) is the beginning.  The following is a helpful kit to equip you with all you need to know to  fight those attempting to sabotage the last stages of Obamacare implementation.  It was put together by some  very smart people who understand successful  messaging.
