In response to slasher9's comment:
its called the Affordable Care Act. and it's a law. just like the right to carry guns that you would kill CT 1st graders to protect. or do you only pick and choose which laws you want to fervently defend???
Well, yeah...without getting into the health care debate, of course we all do this.
The fact that something has succeeded in becoming a law does not mean it is wise, or practical, or moral, or what have you. A lot of horrible things were once "law" in this country (and perhaps some still are). The ACA might be awesome or it might stink, but in my opinion if you have to defend it by saying "Well, it's the law, so get used to it!" you've already conceded the debate.
I will say this about the ACA: its not perfect, but I have seen our medical care delivery system from the inside, and it was severely broken. Something had to be done. I would not envision the ACA to be the final product in its current form. Hopefully it will get changed over time to make it a more workable system. One thing is crystal clear: things could not continue the way they were going.
