What the Supreme Court’s ObamaCare ruling really means
Now that that dust is starting to settle over the recent Supreme Court ruling to uphold the Affordable Care Act (dubbed ObamaCare by its detractors) I thought it was time to weigh in with some thoughts about what this ruling REALLY means for us.
To those who are celebrating the dawn of a new age in healthcare, I say: You’re missing the point. But probably not for the reasons you may be thinking.
Because what we’re actually talking about here is extending (indeed, forcing) access to an already broken system. No matter what they say about taking care of more people, this whole thing isn’t about “health” care at all; it’s about “sick” care.
It’s not about actually making people better. It’s about pouring more money into a system that’s ruled by private companies.
And, let’s face it, the last things these corporations are interested in is a nation full of healthier people. After all, if that happened, who would spend billions and billions of dollars on drugs for diabetes, cancer, and other diseases that can be prevented…and prevented CHEAPLY, at that?
Of course they don’t want us managing our health with simple steps like an organic plant-based diet, vitamins and minerals, and natural supplements. They want us to rely on mainstream approaches and drugs that only come into play when we’re already sick.
They want us to pour more and more of our money into a broken system. One that would rather line the pockets of Big Pharma, private insurance companies, and food giants like Monsanto than support us in a true quest for health.
It’s just more of the same thing–the government telling us what health care we can and can’t have instead of giving us a real choice. True health care reform means making a strong move toward true health care freedom.
We must demand that the FDA respect the First Amendment and allow supplement makers to speak the truth about the benefits of their products. We must demand that our “health” insurance truly meets our needs–and that includes covering all health care choices, including natural and alternative medicine.
We must demand freedom of choice, including the freedom to make our own health care decisions.
P. S. Keep reading for natural ways to stay “regular.”
