People forget the bottom line of PPACA: that everyone is entitled to healthcare as human beings. No, it's not going to change overnight, but all this conspiracy talk and negativity is only going to see the critics left behind.
Wait, hold on. Will this address the lazy and unhealthy nature of our citizenry?
Nope, thus it does nothing. It won't make medical care cheaper. It'll just balloon the amount that the government spends on it. Without any actual repercussions due to poor life decisions, there is no incentive to live healthier lives.
This addresses a symptom of the disease because no one wants to attack the "disease".
Imagine how history is going to look back on Obama and record his passage of the bill, it's challenge to the Supreme Court, and even the states pitching a fit about it; the end result is its validity and implementation.
Well, since no one seems to know what the financial impact will be, I say we hold out applause until we find out.
Regardless of whether or not we agree with it, we are all witness to a landmark period of history in our country. We might as well run some dirt on it and do what we can to adapt.
And if the cost is astronomical, will you own it?
