Republicans Continue Pledge to Repeal ObamaCare

“For me this is a season of hope — new hope for a justice and fair prosperity for the many, and not just for the few — new hope. And this is the cause of my life — new hope that we will break the old gridlock and guarantee that every American — north, south, east, west, young, old — will have decent, quality health care as a fundamental right and not a privilege.”

The Supreme Court’s recent 5-4 ruling to uphold the bulk of the Affordable Health Care Act a.k.a ObamaCare did more than echo the words and aspirations of Sen. Edward Kennedy who passed before the bill became law two years ago. The ruling demonstrated that the Robert’s court does have the capacity to rule in favor of the people vs. party politics or affiliation.

automatic victory for Republicans. President Obama commented live after hearing about the ruling and encouraged all sides to move forward and further improve health care bill options. He further stressed the importance of focusing on current issues at hand surrounding jobs and the economy.

Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on the other hand saw the ruling as a reason to repeal ObamaCare in its entirety, saying, “ Congress must act to repeal this misguided law. ObamaCare has not only limited choices and increased health care costs for American families, it has made it harder for American businesses to hire.” Mitt Romney commented, “ObamaCare raises taxes on the American people by approximately 500 billion dollars.”

One thing is certain, as the country heads into the final months of campaigning for the 2012 Presidential race, it appears that republicans will continue to use healthcare as its rallying call to defeat President Obama in November.

However, The White House wants Americans to remember that the bill has numerous benefits for millions of middle class Americans such as:

  • Insurance companies no longer have unchecked power to cancel your policy, deny you coverage, or charge women more than men.
  •  Soon, no American will ever again be denied care or charged more due to a pre-existing condition, like cancer or even asthma.
  •  Preventive care will still be covered free of charge by insurance companies–including mammograms for women and wellness visits for seniors.
  •  By August, millions of Americans will receive a rebate because their insurance company spent too much of their premium on administrative costs or CEO bonuses.
  •  5.3 million seniors will continue to save $600 a year on their prescription drugs.
  •  Efforts to strengthen and protect Medicare by cracking down on waste, fraud, and abuse will remain in place.
  •  6.6 million young adults will still be able to stay on their family’s plan until they’re 26.

Chief Justice Robert’s decision not only upheld the constitutionality of the Affordable Health Care Act, but it went a long way in giving Americans hope that he’s his own man, capable of dispensing fairness on major issues that come before the court.
