obamacare gives people who may financially struggle an opportunity to be taken care of health care wise

 @9G67MJ5 from Texas agreed…5mos5MO

This compiles key polling data examining the favorability of the Affordable Care Act and its provisions, including protections for people.

 @9F7XTP6 from Georgia disagreed…6mos6MO

Implementing a required, universal healthcare plan forces people to pay for commodities that are unnecessary. Instead, different companies should be able to create their own plans. This will lessen the power and influence that the federal government has over its people and their medical decisions, give people more say in how their bodies are treated, and help people pay only for what they personally need.

 @9F7XRCQ from Georgia disagreed…6mos6MO

No. It only causes more debt for the government to deal with and people should not rely on the government for particular help

it's not efficient or effective

it drives up private health insurance costs

many people can't afford it

  @VulcanMan6  from Kansas commented…6mos6MO

 @9F97S2LProgressive from Texas disagreed…6mos6MO

access to free, or lower cost, healthcare should be offered to the largely impoverished nation. More importantly, we are the one of the only developed nations without universal healthcare.

Programs like Obama Care are a step in the right direction towards free/affordable healthcare. Healthcare shouldn't have to be a worry for people in the 21st century.

 @9F7YSQK  from Ohio disagreed…6mos6MO

The constitution guarantees the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, providing healthcare to the people should be considered part of these rights.

 @9F9BQHMRepublican from Oklahoma disagreed…6mos6MO

This "providing of healthcare" increases everyones taxes and only ends up helping a microscopic percentage of the united states and the people actually paying for it. As great as it sounds free universal health care is something that is just not a possibility because you end up paying for it one way or another.

 @9F86XVTRepublican from Florida agreed…6mos6MO

Obamacare is bright for Democrats, but as a Republican this is a stupid idea going against my beliefs. Work hard. Nothing is perfectly easy in life. Especially not healthcare. There are American citizens who work harder than anyone and still pay for their healthcare. Nothing is impossible in todays society, and hypocrites will go out and show their political stance on abortion, taxes and free healthcare but can't work? Weird.

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...12yrs12Y

Yes, but a mandatory single payer system would be even better

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...12yrs12Y

No, open the markets so insurers can compete across state lines and reduce costs

 @9GMDBW9Peace and Freedom from New York disagreed…4mos4MO

i AGREE BECAUSE MAKING OBAMACARE AFFORDABLE WOULD ALWAYS BE THE BETTER OPTION TO GIVE PEOPLE MORE OPPUTUNITY.

 @9GL4XJS from California disagreed…4mos4MO

Well considering that the U.S is the best at having health care , so I say that the best would be at least let the health care system compete like businesses.

 @9GKVV5Z from Nebraska disagreed…4mos4MO

The problem with Healthcare in America as of right now is the cost. When it comes to quality, America is home to the highest quality medical care in the world; there is a reason people come here from other countries to get their surgeries. So, the question is, what can we do to keep that high quality, while lowering costs for Americans? The solution is to treat healthcare as a commodity; allow hospitals to compete like businesses. This will lower costs. The fact is, healthcare is not free market currently. If one were to go and get a surgery or even an x-ray, they do not know the cost until…  Read more

Findings and Conclusions: No state's regulatory framework fully protects the individual market from adverse selection.

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...10yrs10Y

No, government should not be involved in healthcare

 @9FFY23F from New Jersey disagreed…5mos5MO

government would then be given too much authority and power and may possibly abuse it, by increasing healthcare funding for those who cannot afford it.

 @9FL3WY3 from California disagreed…5mos5MO

Health-care could help the people immensely, especially for those who are struggling to make ends meet.

 @9FBQTTGRepublican from Indiana disagreed…6mos6MO

I think it should be involved in healthcare because if people can not afford it, then the government can help pay for it and the people could always pay back.

 @9FBJFSN from Pennsylvania disagreed…6mos6MO

i think the government should be involved in Obamacare because it helps the people who aren't wealthy enough to afford regular care

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...12yrs12Y

Yes, I support a majority of the plan but not all aspects

 @ISIDEWITHDiscuss this answer...10yrs10Y

Yes, and allow consumers to choose providers and import pharmaceuticals from other countries

 @8LBTY8Pfrom Maine answered…3yrs3Y

I support the part where people with preexisting conditions cannot be denied healthcare, but generally healthcare shouldn’t be controlled by the government, since it increases wait times and becomes really inefficient and expensive. Also, i think that health care shoud be free

 @4RTCKHBfrom California answered…3yrs3Y

Too much emphasis is placed on current medicine! "Modern " medicine is still not very good!

Many Americans get too caught up in medicine when IN FACT health is easily maintained, for example eat natural healthy foods, exercise, and have a good Attitude, etc.

 @4RVPH5Qfrom Arizona answered…3yrs3Y

I find it hypocritical for Congress to enact a law from which they have excluded themselves.

 @kmwhite59from California answered…3yrs3Y

No, it is just a ploy by pharmaceutical companies and the government to get the American people hooked on pharmaceuticals from the womb to the tomb.

 @4RV5KMQfrom New York answered…3yrs3Y

Probably one of the top three most complicated and important issue. I am not opposed to a single payer system but quality of care can not suffer for cost. I think that insurance companies are literally killing this country. I am willing try almost anything at this point.

 @5B2RSHRJustice party memberfrom New Jersey answered…3yrs3Y

Big Pharma needs to be dismantled, and the cure for Cancer needs to be made available. What do you think people are stupid. You gotta bunch of fat cats making millions off of hospital bills, drug costs, and treatment for people's health. They literally destroy lives, emotionally, financially and mortally

 @4Y89PDJfrom Guam answered…3yrs3Y

No I don't. I do think the government (if there is one) has an obligation to promote HEALTH and how people can stay healthy. Programs funded by the government should be in line with this and corporations promoting products harmful to health ( which would raise the cost of healthcare across the board and burden the taxpayer((if there was a government healthcare system)) should be required to label such products as "harmful to health" and tax the corporations heavily. Certain ingredients should be banned and companies found promoting profit over health should be put out of business. Also, these companies should NOT be allowed to sponsor sporting events Pepsi, Frito Lay, Marlboro, Budweiser...). Marketing to children should be considered a crime.

 @4SL5BYMfrom New York answered…3yrs3Y

Adopt Canadian or European healthcare system. Pharmaceutical companies own the USA.

 @4V9SWMMfrom Arizona answered…3yrs3Y

No. The ACA is an obvious socialist wealth redistribution scheme. The public through their government should have a vested interest in general public health. However, personal responsibility for one's health should be Naturally Darwinistic and can never be effectively managed by government.

 @4QYXLK4from Florida answered…3yrs3Y

It is discriminatory and totally unfair to cigarette smokers which discrimination is illegal. The cost for smoking surcharges are unfair to only one vice in this world of vices, obesity is just as deadly, if not more.

 @4R6GW9Hfrom New Jersey answered…3yrs3Y

The law for decades has been that anyone coming to an emergency room is entitled to appropriate care regardless of their ability to pay. Unless we are willing to go back to the times when people got turned away from hospitals and died of easily treatable conditions because they couldn't pay for treatment, we have already made the decision that society as a whole is responsible for everyone's health care. All we have to work out is how we are going to pay for it. The system prior to "Obamacare" was grotesquely inefficient in terms of how much it cost and how many people did…  Read more

The best thing about the healthcare act is mandate children up to 26 can remain on parent insurance policy. This helped our children a great deal until they could find employment that offered health insurance.
I'm sure there are some other things that are good. I'm just sure what they are.
The cost and penalty is prohibitive. It harms people and their way of living due to cost.

 @56VJMLCfrom Kansas answered…3yrs3Y

HELL NO!!!! Any law that's passed but exempts congress should be shoved up the asses of those who shoved it upon us citizens

 @4W33625from California answered…3yrs3Y

No, it's my right to decide if i want health insurance for my body or not. I'm not a car that has a possibility of hitting another car or property or person. It's my body. I shouldn't be penalized for not getting one.

 @4RHMRF7from Oklahoma answered…3yrs3Y

No. I still can't afford it, so I'm going to be fined hundreds of dollars that I can't afford??? Healthcare should be free for everyone or not required. We can't have both.

No, Obamacare set the struggle for single payer back an entire generation

 @4QJVPDMfrom Oregon answered…3yrs3Y

Healthcare has sky-rocketed due to insurance companies and lawyers. Deal with them and leave the medical profession alone. To penalize those who choose NOT to have Health care is ludicrous.

 @4WW7B8Yfrom Kansas answered…3yrs3Y

The PPACA has nothing to do with healthcare. It is an alternative tax system that should be abolished.

 @4RQM7QWfrom Florida answered…3yrs3Y

We need to encourage more competition in our society as a whole and in the medical community especially.

 @4WTMH3Wfrom California answered…3yrs3Y

I want to see socialism in America only when it comes to insurance. I want to see the private sector of insurance eliminated to eliminate the ridiculous over inflation of medical treatment and services. I want to see an even playing field across the board and if you choose to spend more of your own money on certain medical experiences, and there can be different price points.
