Everybody really needs to just take a breath... there now. Under the ACA, insurance carriers will now have to create real, comprehensive and, oh horrors! affordable health plans for the middle-classes and the (working-their-butts off, but STILL) poor.
Gosh, people might actually be able to stop wasting their money on, "incomprehensive" health care i.e., the so-called individual and family *"plans," that folks have to choose from now. (their "plans" are for you to pay hellacious deductibles, co-insurance and co-pays, for minuscule coverage)
For the, "not paying for it" crowd; Now seems to be a good time to point out that we have all, already been, "paying for it" in increased deductibles, co-insurance, co-pays and catastrophically soaring medical expenses. As well as higher and higher taxes.
The ACA will actually lessen some of these (apparently, mind-numbing), costs.
Speaking of “no new taxes," now, let's not forget the giant, budget-busting tax cuts for the rich, the GOP is ceaselessly fomenting and seemingly, will-not-rest (it's hard work) until no millionaire tax cut is left behind.
And, hold on ... just imagine the cost-savings of no longer having to prosecute the Bush/Cheney wars; bringing the military; the DOD budgets into reality: Wowsa!
Besides, I'm pretty sure that, if you really don't want a cost-effective and comprehensive, individual or family plan, you're free to pay just as much as you'd like; I mean this is America.
