Affordable HealthCare Message from Magic Johnson

Magic Johnson on Getting Covered: "It Saved My Life"

No matter how old you are or what your profession is, an injury or illness could happen to anyone at any time. Watch Magic Johnson talk about what having quality health care has meant to him — then pass it on.

Like Magic, our family has had Affordable Healthcare for years as part of the Federal Employees Health Benefit Program.  If my kids were younger today, because of ACA they would be covered until 26 instead of us having to get them health insurance while they were still in college.

ACA may not be perfect, but it is a good start and if states like Oklahoma were cooperating instead of putting up roadblocks, we would be much farther along in covering those who don't have insurance. Republican Governors should be ashamed of themselves for putting petty party politics over the health and well being of the residents of their state.  Republicans have lost my total support for many reasons but their obstructionism on healthcare ranks right up there near the top.  The list is much shorter if I posted what I agree with the GOP on today as the top three items:
  • _______
  • _______
  • _______
Absolutely nothing -- there is not one thing I can think of I agree with the backbiting, sold out GOP of today who have the empathy and credibility of a gnat.

Anyone thinking of voting for the obstructionist GOP who could care less about the vast majority of American people need to ask themselves why they have to lie so much to get their narrative out in public.  Is it because the facts are their enemy?   

If you cannot trust the GOP, why vote for them?  Help us elect people to office like Elizabeth Warren who put the American people first and big donors and Wall Street last.  This Country would be better off with more Elizabeth Warren's and less of the sell out Koch puppets who permeate the GOP of today!
