The ACA has likely already affected you unless you are under Vet care which is government care.If Obama's HHS secretary Sebelius is serious in getting the site for ACA up and working, perhaps she should try feeding it some Viagra, I hear that helps, thank God I don't need the ACA, but if I did and tried to enroll, only to fail to get on many times, would the ACA cover my agita, and angst? Just a rhetorical question, with a tad of levity, no reply needed.
If you already have healthcare insurance whether you bought it privately or get it somehow through your employer the ACA has provided additional coverage and benefits to you.
I knew a man who had coverage under a very large group plan. He exhausted his coverage and his insurance lapsed, next came personal bankruptcy.
His wife was left with nothing. A lot of the nasty dirty tricks that insurance companies used to pull are stopped under the ACA.
In addition some of those passed on charges to people who used emergency care or could not pay were passed on to you somehow some way. Under the ACA if they are being required to be responsible for their healthcare costs and help pay the bills.
No longer are "all" costs being passed on to those who can pay or have healthcare coverage.
This whole thing of Obama care is not as bad as some would have you believe. There is a lot of b/s out there and a lot of miss-representation of what it is all about.
