The Affordable Care Act is very much alike to one of my favorite movies in the late 1950's. Yes, I am that old to have seen the picture in the movie house just down the block from my home in downtown Atlanta, GA. One of the best old Horror Movies, the BLOB a horror/monster film from 1958, about a killer ameba from outer space. Here is the description back in the day "An alien lifeform consumes everything in its path as it grows and grows." No kidding in dealing with this law for seven years as a healthcare advisor it is very much like the movie the BLOB. Steven McQueen in his film debut is trying to figure a way to stop the BLOB. Just like our friends in the Congress. Once you touch it, you cannot get rid of the BLOB.
The Affordable Care Act is very much like the movie in the late 1950's. Yes, I am that old. If you are from Georgia, you may know the Grove Theater or movie house, as we called them back in the day. It was just down the block from my home in downtown Atlanta. This movie was one of the best genres of old Horror Movies.
Here is the description back in the day "An alien lifeform consumes everything in its path as it grows and grows." The Blob makes an excellent comparison to the biggest issue on the minds of most Americans. That is the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act better known as Ocare (AKA Obama Care). Think I am kidding? You can call it sarcasm, however, I like to look at humor rather than crying.In dealing with this law for seven years, it is very much like the movie The BLOB. The young Steve McQueen in the primary role is trying every way he can think of to stop the BLOB.
I had to think of our friends in the Congress. Those Democrats on the side of keeping the law as is and hunting down pesky Russians who trampled the election just a few months ago. On the other hand, we have the Republicans who are wanting to replace and repeal the law as well as ward off the Russians in another way. The entire Congress should see the movie. In fact, you can stream it on Amazon. It is a horror classic, and the PPACA may be a classic in horror as well. It seems like it is unstoppable just like the blob.
