Affordable Care Act

By Joe Vescovi | Mar 14, 2014

I read with interest "Shelbys Shennanigans" in Friday's paper.  I think the GOP has done a great job of calling The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, "Obamacare".  Even Shelby called it Obamacare. The Act gave her and millions of other people the opportunity to purchase affordable health care that had before the Act been out of reach for them.  She is one that took the responsibility to check into her options.  By labeling it Obamacare I feel many who oppose Obama automatically is against  the Act without even looking into the benefits available to them.  Yes, there are some who were detrimentally impacted but let us not do away with a program that will help millions. I would hope after over 50 votes to repeal the Act have failed in the House, they would finally work with the other party to improve the Act so no one loses an insurance policy that meets the minimum requirements of coverage.

"I would hope after over 50 votes to repeal the Act have failed in the House" -- Or another way to look at it, if The People recognize that Obamacare is bad for America, they will send different people to Washington who will favor repeal of the Act.  That's the beauty of elections in a free society.  I welcome and enjoy a respectful and constructive debate on the matter as we approach the November elections and ultimately the 2016 election where a total recognition of a failure would result in a repeal of the law.  Or not....
