Yes the ACA should be repealed if not heavily modified. The quality of life/better health if that is the supposed actual goal of an INSURANCE bill would be diminished by the financial hardship of mandatory coverage wether a penalized non buyer or a covered person now forcd to pay premium increases to pay for others,conditions and services previously not covered.

This bill might make insuranced based services more affordable but the cost of INSURANCE still wont be 'affordable'.

The problem with affordability is not insurance or no insurance but the health care industry that became dependent on third party payment to GOUGE the patients AND insurance companies on billing. If the health care industry is crying about poor business let them compete for it like many a practice & hospital group already do for those insurance dollars. The pricing structure and mentality of the current for profit health industry needs to be re-evaluated.

"We are now seeing the unraveling of Obamacare and the disaster that it truly is. I have been warning you what will happen and already premiums are going up and more regulations are coming into effect." ---Mark Levin, 18 February 2013

It's really quite simple! Nothing's free! Somebody has to pay! That somebody is usually working, tax paying, middle-class, Americans! Seems WE pay for EVERYTHING and get nothing for it but higher taxes! WE can't afford our health care now because of the millions of freeloaders on that communist Kenyan's FREE RIDE! The poor are the problem! They honestly can't afford health care! WE can't afford to buy it for them! So the only solution is for them to go without health care! That's how capitalism works! Want health care? Get a JOB! It's really that simple! WORK OR DIE!
