I find it a good thing that my sister, who is a diabetic, can now get covered, when she couldn't easily or without great cost because of a
I find it a good that that a relative, born with a heart defect that required multiple surgeries and a lifetime of expensive meds, is allowed to stay
on his father's plan until he is 26 and gets out of college.
I find it a good thing that women have easier access to healthcare and wellness.
I find it a good things that those below the poverty line will actually be able to get some kind of healthcare.
I don't see that as a scam at all.
In my first post I said I didn't agree with the fine or the requirement for insurance, but that it was no reason to get rid of the ENTIRE thing for
the few flaws. As far as what is affordable, it's likely a LOT more affordable and beneficial, according to estimates and data, than the gouging,
for-profit SCAM we have called private healthcare.
Now that's the real scam.
So, it might not be affordable to someone making 170 a week (and neither is life), but to the MANY below the poverty line who do NOT have insurance,
this offers them something, and I'm imagine it's a lot cheaper than the next ER visit they take.
The whole system needs to change. Don't out the entirely of fault on AHA. That's unfair.
