Share your thoughts about the Affordable Care Act commonly called Obamacare and the Supreme Court's recent ruling about it.
Over sixteen million fewer uninsured and receiving care paid for by their insurance now instead of creating red ink for providers. That means more care is being paid for at doctors, hospitals, etc. That in turn means smaller losses for providers of care and more preventive care for the newly insured which lowers the incidence of expensive chronic care. It also means that the losses to providers prevented by these 16 million people being insured are not being shifted into the costs of people who are insured.
The Affordable Care Act is doing a great job, and would be doing even more if wasn't for the stubborness of those red states that refuse to set up health care exchanges. If you want to hate Obama that is your right. But when it comes to the Affordable Care Act, the fact is that it is a great program.
It isn't only the future generations that will suffer from this act, it is the seniors also who will have to pay more out of their meager retirement funds. "Affordable" should be stricken from the name of the act.
