Today the Supreme Court ruled that most of Obama’s Affordable Health Care Act is Constitutional. But it was close with only Chief Justice Roberts siding with the Liberals on the Court. Perhaps the most important part of the Policy was ensuring that Insurance Companies cannot penalise patients for ‘pre-existing conditions’.
As an ileostomist, having lost my large bowel through military service, I have been one of those that has been discriminated against because of my pre-existing condition. But it is children who suffer the most. Those who are born with conditions like cystic fibrosis, will no longer be denied medical insurance.
Thank you President Obama.
This is a small step in the right direction, but it will take many many decades before the USA becomes a Caring Society that finally realises that it has to protect its greatest asset, The People.
The Affordable Health Care Act should be called “ObamaCares”.
