Presidents Regan, Bush Senior and Carter have managed to live long lives. Regan died in his 90″s, Bush and Carter are currently 92. They have lived long lives partly due to good genes, but also, partly due to access to exceptional health care and foods. By contrast, President Clinton publicly made McDonald’s part of his regular diet and he’s has had serious health problems but great health care. Regan lived until his 90’s with. Alzheimer’s Disease. President Carter is surviving cancer (in his 90’s and is in remission) and teaching Sunday School classes. Trump is assuming the White House at 70 years of age, the oldest to ever take office and, his wealth equals health.
The wealthy have mislead the masses of the poor, especially poor whites. Small business–which doesn’t literally mean (economically) small complains about the cost to offer insurance to their employees:
A (small) business must make between or below $750,000 and $35.5 million and have between or below 100 and 1,500 employees depending on the industry – See more at: http://www.businessnewsdaily.com/295-sba-size-standards-small-business.html#sthash.MSTnv08m.dpuf
I think of small as a Mom and Pop hardware store or newspaper stand or bodega, not a million dollar company or LLC. So, this is not fair. President Obama attempted to create somewhat of an equal playing field by the Affordable Health Care Act, ensuring that all Americans could have the opportunity to benefit from healthcare. The wealthy simply do not want to contribute their fair share to ensure that their countrymen have health care. They do not care if the poor lives or dies and if they have to pay for it, it seems they would see the poor die. On the other hand, a small country like Cuba ensures a safety belt for all its citizens. Cuba, which has universal health care, has one of the highest life expectancy rates in the world, 78.45 years.
Health care changes lives. Health care saves lives. Health Care Matters.
