This will make it possible for the Republicans to do away with the Affordable Care Act. With that, insurance companies will be able to deny coverage because of a pre-existing condition like diabetes, covid-19 etc. You will also lose coverage for your adult children.
Please know also that the Republicans have no plan. Get that? After 10 years they still have no plan for a replacement for the Affordable Care Act.
Remember also that a Republican promise is worth nothing as evidenced by the nomination of a Supreme Court replcement for Ruth Bader Ginnsburg with a presidential election 40 days away. They denied Obama a Supreme Court nominee because it would be within the same year as an election.
If you have served in the armed forces, are a veteran, suffered the loss of a brother in arms or your limbs, how you can support the re-election of Donald Trump or the Congress that supports him. Or, are you like the President said “Suckers and losers”.
If you do, you should know that after 197 thousand deaths to Covid-19; Donald Trump and the Republicans finally have a plan?
Yes! It is called herd immunity. They would continue to do nothing until there have been enough cases of Covid-19 to reach “herd immunity”. By the time we have reached that herd immunity number, 3 million of our citizens most in danger from Covid-19 will have died.
Who is most in danger? People with pre-existing conditions like your parents, people with diabetes, people with heart conditions and obesity are most in danger. That’s right our parents and grandparents.
Please wear a mask and social distance for your parents and loved ones!
Please wear your masks and social distance, not for yourself, but for those you love.
Your right to mask or not mask extends to the point that it interferes with another’s right. In this case other people’s right to not get Covid-19.
Society has always guaranteed the rights of both parties.
It is the law that you must wear a seat belt both to protect you, your passengers and other drivers on the road.
You must get a license to drive to protect others on the road from inexperienced or bad drivers.
It is against the law to smoke in restaurants and public buildings because cigarette smoke harms both the smoker and the non-smoker.
Stop signs, speed limits and traffic lights are to protect the rights of you and others on the highway from injury from an accident.
Society has laws to protect society from people who are concerned only with their personal wants.
If people were considerate of the rights of others, laws would not be necessary to govern others behavior.
Even the pilgrims recognized that some people are so centered on themselve that there must be laws to protect and guarantee the safety of society. Hence they had to sign the Mayflower Compact before they exited the boat.
Your right to not mask extends to the point where it exposes others to Covid-19. If you don’t go out into society you most certainly have the right and freedom to not wear a mask.
I would ask that if you do not wear a mask, you refrain from seeking medical attention. You see, I shouldn’t need to pay for an illness that you brought upon yourself. You have the right to drive into a brick wall, but I should not have to pay for your decision. If you destroy your liver from drinking, I should not have to pay for your treatment. If you choose to overeat, I should not have to pay for your medical bills. Your bad decisions ultimately end up costing the rest of us increases in insurance and hospital costs.
THINK OF OTHERS, NOT JUST YOURSELF, AND THE LIFE YOU SAVE JUST MIGHT BE YOUR OWN.
They now, FINALLY, do have a plan to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic. They will the allow the virus to run free among the populaion until hopefully we reach herd immunity (which they really don’t understand). Using that plan, over 2 million of our neighbors must die.
They will protect those at risk of death from the virus; they promise. Just remember that this is the same President and the same political party that said the virus would just disappear by April.
