Cleveland OH: The Green Party of Ohio has observed with interest the false "debate" that has occurred in Washington DC and in statehouses around the country.
We realize that the "Affordable Care Act", better known as Obamacare, is a flawed law that has never lived up to the promises the Democratic Party talked about during its passage.
The Republican plan, recently withdrawn by the US House leadership, is equally flawed. Neither plan addresses the basic problem in the US healthcare system, the fact that our system, as presently constituted, contains a profit motive. Insurance companies, far from acting in the best interests of their customers, have acted, and will continue to act, with shareholder and management profit in mind.
