A quick word about the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a.k.a., Obama-care

The ACA was a rushed plan.  Many legislators could not / did not read the bill in entirety, but it was approved.  There were also some measures tacked onto the bill that had little or nothing to do with the actual bill.

There are more people unemployed, lacking health care than since the Great Depression.  There are more illegals in our nation than ever before.

People who do work can't afford health care because the costs have escalated so much re: premiums, co-pays and out of pocket expenses.  Even if you have health care you can't afford the out of pocket.

And since the health care industry will not deal with all these issues themselves, the government needed to step in.

I don't like the ACA, but I recognize the need for us to do better.  Health care is unaffordable for the majority.  That definitely says something.

It seems like the Republicans continue to bad mouth the ACA and are trying to panic the public with their "information" which is not factual and actually is mis-information.

However, if the majority of our nation does not have health care the rest of us are going to suffer for it.

Extreme Republicans need to stop being idiotic and trying to scare the people.  It's time for both parties to work together.   This hasn't been done in at least 2 decades and it's one of the reasons why Americans have fallen to new lows.

Working together used to be what we did best.   Now we just bickering and disrespect each other.   It's time to change that.

Part of me hopes that the Government does shut down this weekend.  Government may need a vacation so that the rest of us survive a little easier.

My advice to Congress:   Work together you morons!
