Imagine -- if all politicians had supported the effort and had worked together to improve the ACA -- making changes where needed.
Oh wait --- organized effort by Right Wing (most of them) Republicans to make Obama and anything he did fail.
I find celebrating the demise of the ACA ridiculous.
No one not wearing Rose Colored glasses is fooled by what really went on.
Blahous warned that it is not reasonable to count on promised PPACA Medicaid expansion funding given the federal government’s fiscal situation. “In determining whether to expand Medicaid, however, states must also consider the likelihood that federal financing support may ultimately be reduced from current schedules, shifting additional costs to states,” he wrote.
Blahous added, “From a practical perspective, it is quite unlikely that the federal government will make the full amount of Medicaid payments now scheduled under law. The federal government has now run four consecutive years of unsustainable deficits exceeding $1 trillion annually; most influential national policy makers and analysts acknowledge the need for substantial changes to current policies to avoid uncontrolled debt growth in future years.”

Last week I heard that this will leave some areas of Missouri with no (zero) Obamacare providers. Is that still true, or did they manage to throw something together in the last few days?

You can tell by the limited input to ObamaCare threads that only 4% of the entire country is affected, LOL.
