That's chump change compared to what the deficit (and insurance premiums) would look like without it.
Much less the tens of billions being profiteered every year by the fast, loose, out of control health care sector.
Either you're for a (relatively) equal society, or you're not. The ACA strives toward the former in almost every regard.
It just doesn't go far enough to address the systemic problems that nobody wants to touch.
Our healthcare system was the best in the world, It just needed some tweaking not a complete overhaul. The ACA is a peice of garbage that should be thrown out. I like some of the provisions but as a whole it sucks. I suppose when the time comes and the true cost of the ACA really shows it will be the usual default action. Blame the GOP.
No, it really wasn't...especially not in terms of access or value. It's much more expensive, much less efficient and anti-consumer than comparable systems, by far.
And it makes no sense at all to throw out good provisions with the bad. But if you want to debate the finer points of the law and define your terms, then have at it.
I'm no fan, either, but it's the best our equally broken legislature can muster to this point. It doesn't go far enough in addressing the systemic, practical deficiencies.
