Too much is on my mind right now for me to concentrate on my American Lit homework (and trust me it’s a lot). I just watched the debate that went down and I can’t help but respond. I was never really into politics, actually not at all…until I became a mother. I didn’t realize how important voting was until this year.
Why I can’t vote for the current President…
-I cannot vote for someone who goes against my family, moral, and religious values. I FEAR GOD more than I fear any human beings opinion.
-I cannot vote for someone who is not for the military, my husband has served the US Navy for 6 years and all I see is the unfairness that all of my military friends and their families have been going through. They no longer offer bonuses for re-enlistment, (and before I get chewed out!) Deployments that have been extended, moving over seas, missed holidays, missing out on the birth of their child, physical injuries, mental discrepancies, these men and women are literally sacrificing their lives everyday just so that we can continue to enjoy this great country! & they can’t even be re-compensated for keeping everyone safe.
-I really do not believe that Obamacare is going to work. Yes, Obama did say during the debate tonight that those with health insurance already, may keep their current insurance, but Doctors will be faced with the decision to either discontinue treating Medicaid patients or accept even more patients at the lower payment rate. Meaning, even more overcrowding in the emergency rooms.
My son will be under the “Healthy Families” program this month, (basically health insurance for low-income families) and we have no idea what will be happening once January gets here. My son is 2 months old and has yet to fulfill his required shots. He’s already being scheduled for his 4 month shots due to the over crowding and now with Obamacare all I see happening is my son getting really sick because he won’t be able to see a doctor right away because of over crowding. My best friend works in the medical field. She knows how the hospital environments are like.
America is projected to see a shortage of doctors by 2020, (91,000+) https://www.aamc.org/download/150584/data/physician_shortages_factsheet.pdf
One survey found that Obamacare is motivating 43 percent of doctors to move up their retirement within the next five years. This will intensify the already existing doctor shortage.
I don’t see how Obamacare is going to better the doctor-patient relationship. I didn’t see my doctor while I was in labor until I had to go into the OR during my delivery and by the time I was rushed in my doctor was not present. I’ve read so many posts from all of my tumblr friends who have kids or who are pregnant and complain about how their doctor’s and their kid’s doctor’s didn’t seem to care during their appointments. They say hello, dash away, and ask the medical assistant to write out a prescription.
People aren’t able to receive health care because there are not enough jobs or qualified people for the jobs to receive work benefits…goes back to NOT ENOUGH JOBS.
HELLO! WAKE UP AND SMELL THE UGLY TRUTH! OBAMACARE IS GOING TO SUCK A%$!
-On education, COLLEGE IS EXPENSIVE. EXPENSIVE. I truly believe the reason why people are so unhappy is because they are not able to do what they truly want, as far as career goals. Ever since Obama became president the cost of college has gone up 25%!!! 25%!!! This also ties in with jobs, how can a college student afford to pay for their classes if they don’t have the funds? A scholarship can only go so far. But many students are not that fortunate…
-On jobs, people are forced to do jobs or stay at jobs that make them really unhappy. They stay at a job because they need to in order to take care of their families. My dad worked 2 jobs my whole life, I hardly saw him. He also served in the US military and he still had to work a second job. He was an aspiring civil engineer but gave up his dream because he needed to support his family.
I second question my English major on a daily basis. “Am I going to get a job when I graduate?” “Is the pay worth it?” “Is a teacher’s salary enough to raise a family?” “How am I going to raise my son when Kyle and I don’t have jobs?”
It breaks my heart that so many people are voting just so that Mitt Romney doesn’t become president. They call him and his plans “closed minded” ah, the irony! Their closed-mindedness to his closed-mindedness!
