The GOP and likely others hate the ACA (Obamacare) They provided much
misinformation trying to prevent it's passing into law. The GOP wants less
government and will oppose almost anything to reach this goal. Even if it
results in the suffering and deaths of many many americans.
Now the GOP is working to get rid of it and they say they will replace it with a
lower cost program. Even though they don't have any thing ready to replace it
I wonder how many people know that much about it. I think many people see it
as a bad idea that costs me a lot of money when I could get coverage cheaper.
The ACA is more than just a market place where insurance companies post their
wares. It pays for preventitive care against Colon Cancer, and Breast Cancer for
women to name two.
It provides substidies to people who can't afford the high cost of insurance.
Like most things our government provides. It needs fixes, but the GOP has
faught to kill it not fix it. They and most working people have insurance, so
they think the less than 10% of americans who can't afford or don't have
insurance can get along without the ACA.
Many people who had insurance before the ACA didn't have the coverage they
needed. THat's why the ACA required people to have adequate insurance. In the
past hospitals and doctors were loosing money because the uninsured or under
insured never paid for the needed service. The GOP managed to keep the states
from being required to provide subsidies or to do their part. This weakened the
plan, otherwise even more people would likely be covered.
So lets debate the value of the ACA to americans.
It's ok to just have a general opinon without a link. Since often a personal idea mght
not have political comments or facts to support it. I know I have many opions of my
As with all debates if you do wish to contest an opinon you should
have some facts to back it up.
