The American People DO Want The Benefits Of The Patient Protection Act

 

 

From a Reuters poll:

The survey results suggest that Republicans are convincing voters to reject Obama's reform even when they like much of what is in it, such as allowing children to stay on their parents' insurance until age 26.

Strong majorities favor most of what is in the law.

  • The American People want a health care system where people with pre-existing conditions are allowed to buy insurance for themselves and their families and not cut completely out of the market — a full 82 percent of people surveyed, in fact!
  • The American People want a health care system where people cannot be dropped from their policies when they become sick.
  • The American People want a health care system that is affordable for all Americans who need it.

before the well was poisoned by political rhetoric.

  • The American People want a health care system where they don't have lifetime caps placed on their coverage.
  • The American People want a health care system where routine physicals and checkups are covered without co-pays.
  • The American People—72 percent of us—want a health care system that requires companies with more than 50 employees to provide insurance for them.
  • The American People want a health care system where they don't have to be afraid to lose their job, or leave a bad job, because it would mean they would no longer have health insurance coverage.
  • The American People want a health care system where they know their premiums are being spent on health care and not on marketing, multi-million dollar salaries, and bonuses for CEOs.
  • The American People want a health care system where they can't be denied coverage for a necessary procedure at the whim of a for-profit business that's more worried about their bottom line than actual patient care.

  • The American People want a health care system that prohibits insurance companies from charging higher premiums, limiting benefits, or denying coverage to people for any reason whatsoever.
  • The American People want a health care system — by a margin of 61 percent — that allows children to stay on their parents' insurance until age 26.

  • The American People have wanted a health care system that closed the "doughnut hole" in the Medicare Prescription Drug plan for years now.
  • The American People want a health care system where small businesses can claim tax deductions for providing health insurance to their employees to make them more competitive.
  • The American People want the provisions in the Patient Protection act. You want them for your family. When we take politics out of the equation, we all want them. And we all have them now.

And according to Fox News, in an article dated March 28, 2012 titled, "5 reasons ObamaCare is already good for for you":

The fact is, almost three-quarters of Americans saw health care reform as an urgent priority in the fall of 2009

President Obama had a plan. 

Republicans did not. 

Nor do they now. So when you hear John Boehner say, "This has to be ripped out by its roots. ... The American people do not want to go down this path," know that he isn't being truthful with you. What he means is Republicans don't want to go down this path. But Americans on the whole, do.

Americans DO want the benefits that they'll be receiving as part of the Patient Protection Act, and he knows it.

And Republicans know it, too. Here's how you know Republicans know the American People want the benefits of the health care reform that is now the law of the land: Darrell Issa said he'd replace the Patient Protection Act with ... the Patient Protection Act.

So Independent voters out there reading this, know you are not alone in wanting the improvements in our new health care law just because you hear Speaker Boehner telling you otherwise. And Progressives and Democrats, get on the horn to your Representatives, tweet them, post on their Facebook walls — whatever it takes — and tell them to step out in front of the cameras and start telling our side of the story, which happens to be the truth: People like what's in this law!

Now Let's Talk About Tax, Ba-By! »
