“Access” to Healthcare is a Lie
I am stunned the news media hasn’t pursued the Republican’s default use of the word, “access”, when speaking of their Obama care replacement bill and its coverage of pre-existing conditions.
Here’s a shocker: How many Americans from the poorest among us to the billionaire titans of business have “access” to healthcare?
I have “access” to private jets and their promise to transport me to the far corners of the planet. I have “access” to jewelry stores and their brilliant offerings dripping with flawless, precious stones. I have “access” to Sloan Kettering and its world-class Cancer Care.
I have “access” to virtually everything within my universe except for one, potentially devastating barrier: Money. And lots of it.
Hey America, NO healthcare program designed by the government alters our “access” to healthcare. The GOP’s position is disingenuous, dishonest and a downright lie.
Always follow the money. The GOP replacement healthcare plan will make billionaires more wealthy while the poor among us are left to die.
It’s economic Darwinism institutionalized.
