Twitter discussion with an Obamacare Opponent
My discussion with an Obamacare opponent named M* M*:
M* M*: Majority Disagree w Obama on Foreign Policy, ACA, Economy but Don't Worry People Still Like Him Personally! Democrats R A Joke
JoeNavy: Spoken like a Fox fan. People opposed to ACA know nothing of ACA. Experience will change their minds but not yours.
M* M*: I Don't use healthcare & refuse to pay for anyone else's. When I Need It I will buy a Reasonable policy. Ppl Don't Like Buracracy
JoeNavy: Buying insurance after you're sick causes others to pay higher premiums. That's like buying car insurance after an accident.
M* M*: Auto & Health Vary Greatly, I Support Auto Insurance to protect others from Loss & I Do take Responsibility for MY Healthcare Costs
JoeNavy: Who pays if you are disabled in an accident and cannot pay for your healthcare? The taxpayers will; not you.
So I started searching for M* M*. He’s in his early 30’s. He’s separated from his wife and living with another woman; they just had a child in March. In the past 10 years he has been sued 7 times by creditors. One of the creditors was a non-profit Healthcare Provider, which was paid by garnishing M* M*’s wages for a couple of years. One of the creditors was his mortgage bank who foreclosed on his home. He finally filed bankruptcy.
This doesn’t sound like a person that will take responsibility for his healthcare costs.
