Dear President Obama,
There is a simple solution to the ACA and shutdown crisis. Establish a national referendum and put the ACA on the ballot in November. Let the people decide if they want the ACA to continue in force. I know it is already a law and an unpopular law. Make it clear in the referendum that it cannot be reversed by legislation even if one party holds all three branches of government. Establish a max on spending and tie all increases to the CPI. Have everyone participate, no exemption or wavers and establish a minimum payment for everyone. People that don’t want the insurance will have to pay double premiums after ten years of no insurance and triple premiums after another ten years of no insurance. Make the insurance national coverage with companies allowed to sell in every state, no picking and choosing. Establish a high risk pool and distribute the risks proportionally.
These are suggestions and more can be added to the referendum, all in plain language. This legislation should not be held hostage and should have never been passed by congress with the 80 congressmen that were leaving office. The process that was followed has caused this crisis and it will get worse when the debt limit legislation comes in play. This is legislation where the people should have the last word, not the politicians.
Blaming each other is not accomplishing anything and causing congress to finagle legislation to point blame. It is clear that this could go on for a long time and the people will be the big losers in the end. You, congress and the senate were not elected to play a game of chicken.
A note to all you hard ass objectors to health care for everyone, your money and your attitude about having to pay someone else’s medical bill won’t help you if you’re sick. It is the total participation by everyone, especially on the preventive side of medical care that will help reduce cost and treatments and help find the cures for uncontrollable diseases. For all you people who schlep through life and think you are owed medical care and avoid your personal responsibilities to stay healthy, you are the primary objection to medical care for everyone. You cheat the poor and disadvantaged that require lagitament medical help. This is an all for one and one for all situation, it is too bad the politicians don’t see that.
