The Affordable Health Care Act means affordable health care for all Americans. The green light the law received last week from the U.S. Supreme Court finally puts Americans on the right path to becoming healthier regardless of income, race, gender or preexisting conditions. Now what can be so incredibly wrong about that?
Apparently many members of the Republican Party have huge problems with what they like to call Obamacare. It doesn't matter that millions of Americans will have health insurance, including young adults who will be covered by their parent's health insurance until age 26, Republicans are insistent that the law must be repealed.
But not all Republicans are casting darts at the measure which ranked among the top issues voters wanted Barack Obama to address if he won the presidency in 2008. Some voters have short memories of the plethora of testimonials by Americans who were suffering due to the lack of access and affordability of health care.
But many young Republicans are flexible enough to separate politics from sound public policy. The dilemma of conscience young Republicans say they are facing stems from a desire to stick with the party because of their belief that you always support the party, or do they go with their conscience which leans toward President Obama who seems to get it when it comes to the issues that impact the next generation.
Their view is that the Republican Party is engaged in a really stupid game of partisan politics which will make it difficult for them come November to vote the party line.
Many young Republicans are not sold on Mitt Romney, either. What they hear is a candidate who represents a party that speaks more about what President Obama has done wrong instead of what their party is proposing to do to address the issues of health care, jobs, immigration and education.
These voters will most likely go to the polls in November and very likely may support President Obama's re-election bid. If they do, they will still be Republicans and they may become the hope for their party's future.
