Note: I want to be clear that choosing not to participate in the ACA is an act of civil resistance that I personally chose to take. I am not asking others to do the same. This is a personal decision. You can read more about it here. -Margaret Flowers
Recently, Dr. Margaret Flowers initiated an online petition declaring herself a consciences objector to the Affordable Care Act and asking others to send a message to President Obama that the ACA is a scam.
In this short clip (above), Dr. Flowers states:
“The most important question we should be having right now, knowing that insurance is not protective, is do we want to continue to treat health care as a commodity and people only get what they can afford, or do we want to join the rest of the industrialized nations in the world and treat health care as a public good and create a system where people can get what they need.”
