It’s Time to Put Progress Ahead of Politics
Insuring the uninsured is the right thing to do from a moral standpoint. In my law practice, I’ve seen families destroyed by crushing financial costs. Many of our citizens are one health event away from bankruptcy or worse. But it’s also the right thing to do financially. The uninsured create a financial burden on our health care system that the rest of us pay for. Getting more of our citizens insured is both the right thing and the smart thing for Kansas City.
No one is saying that the Affordable Care Act is perfect, but it’s a critical step forward. We have time to improve it and I’m confident that, in time, it will make a significant, positive difference.
Right now, however, it’s time to work together and focus on the more immediate need: the March 31 deadline for open enrollment. If you are uninsured or know someone that is, there are many ways to get involved in the new health insurance marketplace.
