A Question

on February 14, 2016

obamacareI know the primaries are the obvious focus of news right now, but there is still a thought I am throwing out for any feedback:

In general, is there less discussion about President Obama’s Affordable Care Act because people are distracted or apathetic, or is it because it hasn’t turned out to be such a bad thing after all?

  1. Depends on who you ask I think. I still think it was a horrible deal and he lied through his teeth. People had plans dropped, insurance companies raised rates and shifted benefits… and tons of people still don’t have “affordable healthcare.” Failure.

      Well put. We had a discussion at work today and the consensus was that not only was the execution of his plan done in a fumbling manner, but the Affordable Care Act was well crafted to look transparent in its benefits while never making the impact it should have.

      • Anything to get his pet project through right? In theory it is a great idea. But if you are going to make a “national healthcare system” make it “national.” Don’t just give it to some. That ain’t national…

    I think this election has taken so many turns. Discussion seems to be about going in vastly different directions. I actually think Obamacare troubles have been something inspiring this phenomenon. Sanders wants completely socialized medicine. (And that he is a real challenge to Hillary is a shocker). Trump wants to replace it. (And who would have thought he would be leading in the polls.) Only Hillary is talking about strengthening it (which seems a tacit admission of how troubled it is).
