The Affordable Care Act had nothing to do with reasonable change. There was no change to the corruption of insurance payouts. No change to the mafia-style third party system that robs doctors of payments and patients of better options. WORSE change to the coding demands on medical practices and hospitals. This wasn't about improvement. This was about putting everyone under more government control and killing the private sector to make all doctors and hospitals into government employees. Less freedom and less options. There's your "Hope and Change."
This is a well stated comment beneath the article by oakhill, Nottingham Pennsylvania:
"There is NO reason why changes could not have been made to the health care industry/insurance in order to ensure that people having difficulty obtaining insurance could get it, and those who already had it would not be impacted negatively. But then, it's rather apparent here that the whole goal was to get everyone on government run insurance, and the ONLY way that could be accomplished was to put in play caveats that would invalidate plans people already had in order to force them into the exchanges - a blatant attack on one's freedom of choice when it comes to their insurance. Whether or not this woman is wealthy and could afford really good insurance isn't something anyone should take issue with. What matters is that it was HER money to spend, and HER choice to pay for the plan that worked for her, regardless. Those that comment here that Obamacare has nothing to do with insurance companies cancelling plans people have simply do not understand the hard facts in force here."
