Senator Jim Inhofe alive today because of healthcare coverage
We talk about the importance of the ACA as it will allow Americans access to affordable healthcare.

"Routine" "preventative" healthcare -- not just "urgent" "emergency" healthcare.

Routine -- Just like Senator Jim Inhofe, Republican from Oklahoma received. That "routine" doctor's visit saved his life.

During a routine doctor's visit, a blockage was discovered.

He had EMERGENCY QUADRUPLE BYPASS surgery in Tulsa last Friday.

Inhofe claims he had no symptoms -- "The discovery shocked me as I had no visible symptoms that something was wrong,"

Without preventative care and "routine" visits, he was virtually certain to have a heart attack.

THAT BLOCKAGE? TPM reports that in fact -- 2 of his arteries had 100 percent blockage, a 3rd was at 90 percent, and a 4th was 75 percent - so he was literally a ticking time bomb.

So Inhofe is alive because of his ability to have affordable "routine" visits. He would deny that same ability to other Americans by denying them the ability to pay for a routine visit.

Did he not do this without Obamacare?

So it is likely that this happens everyday!

WOW! without the government people were actually getting cured?

So somehow this person got Obamacare sooner than everyone else or did it actually happen under other insurance.

Now St Maries is the only hospital in my area that is planning on accepting the new insurance?

How long do you think the waiting period is going to be for these people with this wonderful insurance.

He would have died of old age by the time he gets in?

Uninsured Americans by Congressional District An interactive map of the percent of Americans who do not have health insurace is available here (http://www.nationaljournal.com/magazine/mapping-the-uninsured-by-congressional-district-20131004).

When you call/write your Republican congresspeople, you can tell them that they are holding the government hostage to prevent those many people IN THEIR DISTRICT from having access to affordable health care.

He did it WITH health insurance

the ACA requires people have coverage and brings the cost down for that coverage.

So do you really want to go there?

Cost for health care is not decreasing is not anytime soon.

The 12 month trailing earnings for the insurance industry pretty much insures that.

No, wrong as usual. The ACA claims it will bring down the cost of that coverage. In the early going, can't say that is looking too likely.

The very similar approach in Massachusetts did not bring down the cost of coverage. The state has the highest medical insurance rates in America.

How can anyone realistically expect that covering pre-existing conditions and forcing people to buy coverages they don't want or need is going to lower costs?

The whole thing seems to be based on wistful thinking that a bunch of young people are going to go out and buy health insurance. The polling on that topic isn't terribly encouraging, particularly as we see the plans being offered to them are more costly than previously and have such high deductibles.
