Sen. Chase’s statement on the Supreme Court upholding health care reform

State Sen. Maralyn Chase
By State Senator Maralyn Chase, D-32

The Supreme Court today issued a landmark, and I believe correct, decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act.

This is wonderful news for the millions of Americans who do not have access or cannot afford health care coverage for themselves or their families.

This is also a great day for the more than 1 million Washingtonians who still find themselves without healthcare coverage. It's not right that hard-working Washington families must struggle to afford health care and prescription drugs.

People who work ought to be able to afford to take their kids to the doctor.

The right of every American to have access to quality health care is not a political talking point, despite what cable news tells us.

Now it will be up to elected officials in our state to properly implement this program, a job that is already well underway.

State legislators will continue to be leaders in developing innovative solutions to improve the affordability, security and quality of health care for families across our state.

Senator Chase's comments read like the Democrat Party talking points. But, stealing the future from some hard working families to pay for health care for non-working families isn't progress, unless you are a redistributionist. If you are, just say so, tell us the truth, don't be a coward and cloak it in stealth terms. How innovative will it be when you and your neighbors have to start lining up for basic health care? Example- We will no longer get same day MRI's- in B.C. patients wait an average of 84 days after seeing a specialist for an MRI scan under the public health care system. (http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/story/2008/01/15/bc-patients.html )Now we will all have a system that prefers people dying, rather than using services. Having a heart attack in BC? Better hope they have a bed available.Yes, Obama care is going to be great!
