There was nothing to substantiate their suggestion that this site, which I used for continuing education credit when I last worked as a Medical Technologist and which is a reputable medical site in all ways, was doing anything other than reporting when they said positive things about the ACA. Nevertheless, as right wing rags are wont to do, they bashed Web MD and its public portal, Medscape, for writing anything positive because it is being used to help with the ACA and being paid for that usage.
The story simply insinuates something ulterior was going on and ran with that. No proof of anything, just that suggestion. Web MD has published both positive and negative articles about the Affordable Care Act; but that they would say anything positive, of course, is suspect because that would help make the law work better; and not one right wing person wants it to work at all.
I can't say that everything the Republicans have done was completely obstructionist in relationship to "Obamacare." I can say, though, that the only thing I have seen from them from the beginning was faux outrage for purely political purposes.
I know there are problems with the government portal for the Affordable Care Act. I know they should have picked a different vendor for that purpose. I even know that some folk (but far far fewer than you would believe) are losing their insurance because of the ACA. Most of them are losing nothing because they really didn't have any health insurance; and many of them could actually be saving money in Kentucky with actual health insurance. That would be true in all 50 states if the Republicans in those states hadn't stopped the state-level system from operating.
I know that most of you who would bother to read this blog realize that the main reason Republicans are fighting this law, besides the obvious political implications in the short run, is that within two years of full implementation the vast majority of Americans will almost certainly finally realize that the Republican Party opposes their best interests, at least in this area. That they would still vote for such a political party is questionable; and that is downright frightening to Republican politicians. That they would not win another national election for years is almost certain if they cannot stop full implementation of the law.
So, instead of driving traffic to that other site which remains anonymous in the post, I hope to drive what little bit of traffic actually reads this blog to a highly reputable and excellent site for healthcare information which now includes information about the Affordable Care Act.
