Fourth of July, God Bless America and the Affordable Care Act

By Daniel Zingale 

It’s the greatest legal victory for America’s health in our nation’s history.

By upholding the Affordable Care Act, the US Supreme Court paved the way for a new era in health care in this country, one that matches our aspirations to greatness, our sense of fairness and — maybe most of all — our passion for innovation.

•When the law goes into effect in 2014, Americans will no longer have to worry about where we’ll get affordable and quality coverage if we lose our jobs and our COBRA coverage runs out. 

•We’ll no longer be stranded on a deserted health care island if our children or we have a pre-existing condition.

•Seniors on Medicare, 4 million of whom live in California, will no longer have to worry about prescription drug costs that too often fell into the “doughnut hole.”

•Recent graduates, just entering the workforce, will continue to be covered through their parents’ health insurance and will no longer have to worry about losing health care while also trying to find a job.

•With near universal access to health care coverage, some 45 million Americans, including 7 million Californians, will no longer have to worry about choosing between putting food on the table and paying doctors’ bills.  

Until the Affordable Care Act, uncompensated care  — emergency room treatment for people without insurance — was on track to cost our nation $141 billion by the end of the decade. 

With everyone paying his or her fair share, we can now create a more affordable and accessible health care system.

This new system embodies the great American tradition of applying common sense to seemingly unsolvable problems.  It fills the potholes and paves the road to health security for almost every American and, in doing so, makes our nation stronger and more productive.

But there’s a key element of the Affordable Care Act that few Americans know about: The law’s landmark prevention provisions.

Now — at no cost — key preventive care such as screenings for cancer and heart disease, mammograms and immunizations, will be available to millions of Californians. 

That’s not just good for saving and extending lives, it saves dollars and that helps prevent budgets from being overextended.  Every dollar spent on immunizations, for example, saves our nation $16.50 in treatment costs.

Every 4th of July, we celebrate freedom, liberty and security. This holiday, we can also celebrate a brighter, healthier and even greater future. 

God bless America and the Affordable Care Act.    

Daniel Zingale is senior vice president of Healthy California at The California Endowment.

  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]

  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]

  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]

  • Is the CJA suddenly an unauthorized collective bargaining unit? 2016/10/27
    (JCW is responsible for retitling this press release)(JCW also feels that this is a great reason to surrender your CJA membership and join the ACJ and no, we’re not judges or affiliated with the ACJ in any manner) October 25, 2016 Last May, the California Judges Association crowed that it had been given “a seat […]
