I read all of the Nay votes here and do not understand why they are so positive with the Affordable Care Act. Obamacare is only about insurance not your health.
We live in California and my response is from that perspective.
We were told we could keep our plan and doctors. They forced us onto Obamacare and lost our plan. We were able to keep my doctors however.
We were told it would be affordable. Our premium went up 100%. I was lucky I made good money to be able to afford the increase. We made too much money to get any help with the premium. Our co-pays were also increased. We were lucky to have been with KAISER PERMANENTE or we would have had to get a new doctors and a new plan. We are now on SS and Medicare which we paid into for 40+ years.
We have 5 children and watch them struggle with the premiums. The bigger problem is the co-pays. They do not go to the doctor on a routine level because the co-pays are so high. So the so-called Affordable Care Act is not so AFFORDABLE. And it keeps going up. So health care is getting less and less AFFORDABLE.
So do we think that Obamacare should be repealed and replaced, a resounding YES. Too many regulations. We want to be in charge of our health not the government elites. If Obamacare is so good why aren't the politicians required to sign up?
