Millions stand to lose their health care coverage, including those states reported as having supported President Trump in the 2016 election.
The above is not just speculation. It seems to be what is anticipated because of the action taken by Republicans in the U.S. legislature.
Evidently, should a compromise for Republicans and Democrats be reached, it would enable a single-payer system that could involve a government-funded insurance system that is run publicly.
Were the single-payer system now managed by the current employees of the private health insurance companies, the sole category of people who would be hurt would be the industry executives earning large salaries.
People's health should not be controlled by for-profit businesses.
Sadly, healthcare punditry has descended into mudslinging.
The right, the left, and the center are lost in the sea of regretful policy just proven to proceed well into the forces of moral and fiscal bankruptcy.
Physicians are burdened by documentation as no other country requires, especially with electronic records. A practical query that can be answered candidly by any patient: When was the last time your family physician had the time to talk with you in an uninterrupted manner?
What remains as the sole "beacon of hope" lies with price and profit controls in a single, transparent system apart from outside market forces. It is highly important that the role of the physician in further discussions for a healthcare public utility be removed sufficiently from government interference and politics.
Attempts have been made to equate Republicans hell-bent on stripping healthcare from millions of Americans with Democrats who propose: "Medicare for all."
How is a government-run system so extreme when it exists in some form, in practically every other developed economy and appears to deliver better results at lower costs? Are Americans incapable of rendering weighty, and all-significant things that matter to their lives?
The ever-incessant effort from the Republican legislators to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, likewise known as Obamacare is ostensibly rationalized as one that will "soften the financial blow on red states."
Do the GOP elected representatives continue to oppose having low-income Americans possessing medical insurance if it means the wealthy would have less money?
A compromise for both Republicans and Democrats that would enable a single-payer system could involve a government-funded insurance system that is run privately.
Should the single-payer system be managed by the current employees of the private health insurance companies, it is relatively easy to see that the only people who would be hurt would be the industry executives earning huge salaries.
Therefore, it stands to solid reasoning how those who advocate people's health away from for-profit businesses are on the right track.
People's health should never be controlled by for-profit businesses.
The attempt by Senate Republicans to take healthcare away from millions of Americans reminds those who follow an aspect of political history underscoring what U.S. attorney Joseph Welch strongly stated in 1954, as he directed his words toward the demagogic Republican from Wisconsin, Senator Joseph McCarthy. It was all about the McCarthy allegations of communism in the Army.
Welch's statements are, despite the many decades between, germane to today's Republican senators:
"Until this moment, Senator McCarthy, I think I have never really gauged your cruelty or your recklessness...Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?"
It augurs well for legislators who are bent on following their individual preferences to look into the cause of the majority of the population, not just those who have vowed to follow the dogma of their political parties.
How many party affiliates involved in the legislative process will manifest their true colors?
Republicans' repeated promises (made while they did not control the White House) constituted but one motive: to repeal Obamacare.
Hasn't that been reflected in so many areas of governance that threaten the American populace's lives?
Now that Republicans would actually take the reins of government, they should do so on behalf of all Americans, if they are to work for the haves and the have-nots.
Yet, proofs remain to be seen. This modest columnist, like the majority of American voters, await positive discourse, not its opposite, and often-minus-laden beliefs that have been proven to be on the markedly negative side of what is perceived as today's United States.
