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.
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.
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
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
My advice to Congress: Work together you morons!
