The Hoopla about the Affordable Care Act
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is the same thing as “Obama-care” but a lot of people still don’t know that.  Polls show that people may like the ACA but don’t like Obamacare.  Go figure.
Systems speaking, there are always glitches and problems with new systems whether in the private sector or in government. As with most new systems, for the most part we have a parallel [health care] system running until the bugs are taken out of the new system.

I was not for the ACA, but I also recognize all the finger-pointing at the new system is yet another political avenue for those against it to rally together to create unnecessary attacks in the hope to somehow eliminate "Obamacare" but it will not happen that way.

The ACA is a major law that must now be continued and fixed along the way, until it is proven to be a bad law that does not help or work for the majority of people. When that happens it will be and should be removed from law by the very people it was supposed to help --- the voters.

Republicans and Democrats need to stop the in-house fighting for every issue under the sun. People need government to work for them and not for the benefits to elected and appointed officials and their special interests. That said, government needs to get out of regulating our daily lives. At the Federal, State and Local levels, government is dictating how we should live much more than it has in the past. It needs to stop.

Extremism at either end of the political and economic spectrums is what is destroying the America we once knew and loved. Once upon a time in America we used to work together, but that was then and this is now. There doesn't seem to be much hope that it will change soon.
