Indeed, 98% of Americans essentially will get a tax cut because we will no longer be subsidizing free-loaders who willingly do without insurance and overload our emergency care system. Before I go on let me state emphatically that those who cannot afford insurance are not the freeloaders of whom I speak. Indeed, they too will be helped by the Affordable Care Act. In fact, on average, families will get about a $2000 gift in the form of lower federal costs and less pressure on insurance premiums because of the free-loaders.
Most of you know this, but we fail to counter effectively the GOP spin machine. Every time an uninsured person enters the emergency room, the cost of our care goes up because hospitals have to treat the patient. But SOMEONE has to pay for it.
