Obama on another Obamacare Campaign
Unfortunately, President Obama has decided to continue his campaign style push for the Affordable Care Act. The truth is that such a campaign will do nothing for Obamacare, except give everyone something to joke about. At this point in the healthcare reform process, the legislation has been passed, i.e. the reason for a campaign, and we are waiting for the results. People experience, or will soon experience, the benefits. Where there are faults in Obamacare, such as the faulted Health Insurance Marketplace website, we need to see continual improvement. We do not need to hear why the Republicans are to blame for any failures in the effort; we need to see cooperative legislative efforts that can bring about additional reforms.
Quite frankly, focusing so heavily on Obamacare demonstrates a lack of priorities on the President’s behalf, as well as our Legislators. Unfortunately, the divisive issue is certain to further polarize Democrats and Republicans, thereby undermining other legislative efforts. We live in an environment where our leaders do not put aside their differences for the greater good of the Country. We live in an environment where politicians take a hardliner, all-or-nothing approach. Consequently, over focusing on the politics of Obamacare decreases the likelihood we will avoid a government shutdown and Debt Default in early 2014.
