Has the new health care law affected you?

Posted by   + Show Post

The new health care law guarantees coverage for preventive care. Has this helped you?

I think it's fantastic that you can't be turned down due to preexisting conditions. That never made sense to me.

No.  However, somehow it has impacted the amount we can contribute to the flexible spending account, effectively lowering the amount we can have in there and that is matched by our employer.  Therefore we will be paying much more out of pocket next year.

Preventative care should not be ABORTIONS or to allow or encourage our daughters to seek medical advice with out parent's consent!

No and it has done nothing but hurt everyone in the process.  Honestly, how has really read the laws?  Who has read what this bill has been puffed up with?  I also don't think that abortions are preventative care either.

But what about the moms to be whose life is at risk that doesn't have the money for the abortion? Should she be made to die because she's poor? Or how about the girl whose dad repeatedly rapes her and she gets pregnant? Where does she turn?

There is a difference between rape and using abortions for birth control.  Studies show that 98% of all abortions are conducted for PERSONAL choice, not out of necessity, rape, insest, etc.  I don't understand why this country will throw you in jail for fighting a dog, but killing a baby is legal.

Sorry, I wasn't clear. I meant it towards the part I put in red below. I will do everything in my power to make sure that my daughter knows she can come to me with anything, however I think it's important that girls know they can seek attention for things like that without their family knowing. Unfortunately, there are too many families in this country where kids are treated improperly and need the protection of their parents not finding out about stuff.

Sure, it's affecting us in the sense that it's put more stress on our economy as a whole, thereby taking away even more jobs, taking away from necessary programs like education and adding a new tax. But on a smaller scale, the changes regarding health care in general have not affected my family at all.
