Should $300 Million Be Spent Each Year on Obamacare Outreach?

Argument in favor

Obamacare marketing has been massively underfunded by the Trump administration, and it’s necessary to put more funds into helping people enroll in health insurance to expand health insurance coverage and stabilize the marketplaces.

Yes, help those that need these health care options get connected to them. The fact that Trump peed all over yet another of Obama’s programs has nothing to do with its efficacy. It has more to do with Trump trying to undo the good that Obama has done in his narcissistic drive to put his brand on everything in his sight.

It is embarrassing that the United States does not have universal health care for ALL. It is a human right.

Until we have some type of universal healthcare this is the best we have. Promote it. Save lives.

Argument opposed

The navigator programs that this bill seeks to fund are poorly run and inefficient. There’s also evidence that funds meant for ACA outreach may have been misspent — so there’s a possibility that funds appropriated under this bill might suffer the same issue.

If people are so excited about this "affordable healthcare" why does money need to be spent to convince them to enroll in the program. Another brilliant idea by Maxine Waters!?!?

Money can be spent on actual health care programs for people who need them the most.

    The reason that the programs are having trouble is due to Trump trying to kill ACA . Trump and his minions want the ACA killed because it forced employers to care for their employees. That’s what they didn’t like, it’s the corporations and the people who own them that want ACA Obamacare dead. Shellfish!

    We have too many families that need medical assistance. I would prefer Medicare for all, but until that comes into existence, these people need this. We also need to refund fully Medicaid and Medicare. Medicare never should have been touched to begin with, since it is an investment made by monthly payments out of every American paycheck. Medicaid was created to help families without work, and without any medical coverage. Possibly with this medical assistance we can get more people off opioids and other drugs.

    Yes, make sure that no stone is left unturned to help those who need ACA plans get connected. Ultimately, we NEED LGBTQIA+ inclusive, culturally aware, comprehensive (medical, vision, dental, mental health, specialties, reproductive health, medical transition related care, etc) single payer healthcare! Healthcare is a right, not a privilege!

    👿 10 Democratic Affordable Care Act (Obama Care Act) Failures.👿 The navigator programs that this bill seeks to fund are poorly run and inefficient. There’s also evidence that funds meant for ACA outreach may have been misspent — so there’s a possibility that funds appropriated under this bill might suffer the same issue. It’s been clear that Obamacare was deeply and is still flawed ever since millions of Americans lost their health insurance coverage when it took effect despite advocates’ promises they’d be able to keep them. Obamacare’s mandates have made the cost of health insurance unaffordable, and Republicans are right to try to repeal and replace it. * Three million to 5 million people lost their employment-based health insurance. Many businesses found it more cost-effective to pay the penalty and let their employees purchase insurance plans on the exchanges. Other small businesses find they can get better plans through the state-run exchanges.  * Thirty million people never had company plans and relied on private health insurance. Insurance companies canceled many of their plans because their policies didn't cover the ACA's 10 essential benefits. For those who lost those cut-rate plans, the costs of replacing them are high. The ACA requires services that many people don't need, like maternity care.  * Increased coverage raised overall health care costs in the short term. That's because many people received preventive care and testing for the first time. It was expensive to treat illnesses that had been ignored for decades. The ACA taxed those who didn't purchase insurance. But many avoided the tax through an ever-expanding list of exemptions. Four million people chose to pay the tax rather than pay for coverage. The Congressional Budget Office estimated they paid $54 billion.  * In 2013, the ACA raised the income tax rate for 1 million individuals with incomes above $200,000. It also raised taxes for 4 million couples filing joint returns on incomes exceeding $250,000. The rate increased from 1.45 percent to 2.35 percent on income above the threshold. They also pay an additional 3.8 percent Medicare tax. That applies to the lesser of income from dividends, capital gains, rent and royalties or income above the threshold.  * Starting in 2013, medical device manufacturers and importers paid a 2.3 percent excise tax. Note: This tax was suspended for 2016-2018. Indoor tanning services paid a 10 percent excise tax. This might discourage those businesses from hiring new employees.  * Starting in 2013, families could deduct medical expenses that exceeded 10 percent of income. Before, they could deduct any expenses that exceeded 7.5 percent of income. The Tax Cut and Jobs Act restored the deduction to the 7.5 percent limit for 2018 and 2019. Pharmaceutical companies pay an extra $84.8 billion in fees between 2013 and 2023. That pays for closing the "doughnut hole" in Medicare Part D. Drug costs could rise if the companies pass this onto consumers. In 2022, insurance companies will be assessed a 40 percent excise tax on "Cadillac" health plans. These are plans with annual premiums exceeding $10,200 for individuals or $27,500 for families. Many of these plans are for people in high-risk pools, such as older workers or those with dangerous jobs. Most of the tax will be passed onto the companies and employees, raising premiums and deductibles.  SneakyPete........ 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻. 6.16.19.....

    Obamacare was written by the right wing Heritage Foundation. We need single payer MEDICARE FOR ALL, which would save trillions for employers and everyone else, while saving 40K America. deaths per year.
