I know you all will be pleased if the ACA
is allowed to prevail, because Obama, (who has done nothing wrong), deserves to have his legacy preserved for succeeding generations. After all, to my point of view, ACA is basically just an Extension of MEDICARE which has been around for 50 years or more. It kept many of my older aunts, uncles, grandpa & neighbors alive, & it was a GREAT PROGRAM.
MAIN POINT: The concept of Govt
paying to help the poor & needy, the orphans & the elderly, the crippled or disabled, & military veterans, or elderly widows --- is NOT a new concept. And it is NOT a modern concept of the Democrats or the Socialists or any other Party.
This idea of "Govt assistance" to any citizens
(like the above) actually came from the Founding Fathers
. Yes, back in 1776 our leaders who founded this great nation, had already been considering measures for the assistance of the needy.
: (one of my favorites) had written about it. (He had lived in England & there met Benjamin Franklin, who brought him here to America, just in time for the Revolution). Ben Franklin had a printing press, & Thos Paine was a great writer, so the 2 of them had been extremely influential in spreading the word, why we needed to go to WAR with England, to get our Freedom from the British crown.
I have to leave right now, but hopefully I can get back here to tell the Reference from Thos Paine, where he outlines all his ideas which he shared with Tom Jefferson, on why & how to disperse funds to all the needy members in society. (NOTE: It may sound very "familiar' to you: )
