This is a Crucial election and with the major efforts the Republicans are making to suppress the vote, I hope Democrats and Independents will make a special effort not only to vote, but to help get out the vote. If the Republicans take over the Senate, they will not only try to impeach President Obama, but they will also repeal the Affordable Health Care Law. This is despite over ten million people now having health insurance who previously did not have it. In Kentucky 500,000 more people are now insured due to the Medicaid expansion. What a tragedy it would be for them to lose their health insurance. Fifty percent of the people having to declare bankruptcy has been due to medical bills. Do we want that to happen again? What about kids not being able to be on their parents'' insurance until they are 26, if the Republicans have their way? If Obamacare is repealed, the nasty insurance companies will be able to cancel your insurance if the medical charges are too high. Pre-existing conditions will no longer be covered and on and on.
We are the only major civilized nation in the world that does not provide complete health care for their citizens. Our legislators should be ashamed. We cannot and must not allow the Republicans to take over the Senate. So please vote, make calls, register voters and talk to your family members. Our young people must vote or they will pay a high price in the next few years.
