ACA. The Affordable Care Act is going to destroy the economy!

If you're living paycheck to paycheck, how are you going to afford compulsory health insurance?  Obviously you will have to do without other purchases which will create a drag on the economy.  It is estimated that the american family of 5 will spend between $6 - 20,000 a year on health insurance premiums - that means less money spent on food, rent, car payments, etc . . . definitely not a prescription for a stimulating economy!  With Americans buying less consumer items, almost every industry will have to lay off workers, no retail/no jobs. In order to afford health insurance you will have to give up on something else, what will it be?  What will you have to give up if you do not have employment provided health insurance benefits?

I won't  have to give up anything. I already pay for health insurance.

Economy will be just fine. Other countries have been doing it for years and are way better off than the US.

The affordable healthcare act will SAVE LIVES, and to me, that's all that matters.

I am so grateful my hubby has great insurance through his job. They only take out $15/wk for our family of 5. They take care of so much. I'm glad we're so forunate.

I agree, I work at a major hospital system and we are already preparing for it.  Personally, as soon as it was passed, our insurance was adjusted "due to the ACA" and now we pay 30 dollar copays instead of 15.  90 dollars for urgent care and more money in prescription drug copays.

Nothing is "Free", nothing is especially "Free and Quality"

Other countries with similar healthcare have infinitely better plans. This is a half assed attempt.

Please explain to me how it will save lives? What exactly do you know about it that I do not?

I'm not worried about it.  My husband desperately needs health insurance, and this gives us a chance to get him some.  We will be putting money in a health savings account to help pay for the plan that we choose.  Money that we have saved and specifically put aside for such purposes (most likely from our tax return this year).

My husband has looked into it more than I have, and he is all for it.  I'm just glad that he is finally getting health insurance.

Cosign .. and if I didn't have coverage for my family of 4, it would be not even $150/mth . so I feel good about it either way.
