The political argument about women’s health is backwards. Libs argue that Republicans will kill women by repealing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Yet, when real live doctors begin to read the bill to find how it will affect them the opposite is true. Most people who want the health care act are those who can’t afford insurance, or have a pre-existing condition to make them uninsurable.
I heard a commentator give an analogy last week which is quite accurate but defies human logic. Most of us have car insurance and house insurance. We pay for it. When it comes to health insurance, we want someone else to pay for it. Historically this has been an employer. How many times have you heard someone say they had a car accident, but did not report it to the insurance company because they didn’t want a premium increase? The same kind of logic reigns over homeowners insurance too. When it comes to health insurance we expect someone else to pay, and we use the heck out of it. Why? If we paid for health care insurance ourselves, maybe we wouldn’t be so sick.
Dr. Jill Vecchio speaks in the video about her analysis of the PPACA and the effect it will have on how she will have to treat patients. She makes valid arguments about the law. Watch it and discern for yourself if the Republicans are responsible for killing women, or will the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act kill more?
