I think some are forgetting how the old health care system worked. If you were in an accident and had no insurance you went to the ER (empty handed) and got treatment. The hospital could bill you but you could either skip out on the charge or pay $5 a month towards the bill. In the meantime the hospital had to cover the costs. They in turn use federal subsidies and raise costs to insurance companies who pass on the premium to people and companies that do pay for insurance. People with insurance end up paying twice, through taxes and through premiums.
This law isn't perfect but it is a starting place. Repealing it would only force us back into the situation we had in the first place.
I will vote for anyone who outlines a BETTER idea and refuse to vote for anyone who simply says they'll repeal it. I'm tired of hearing the Obamacare bash. Tell me what you will do to fix the system!
