After working in healthcare for the last 15 years (clerical) and billing insurance I have found that many policies that came out around the time were minimalist coverage so you didn't have to pay taxes at the end of the year. Many people take advantage of this or are uninformed the policy is intentionally bogus to circumvent the system and expect their "insurance" to cover things. I also find it difficult to support because the problem is that insurance was just too expensive and the solution was to force people to buy it. This is what happens when you ask the government to control something that is fundamentally broken and replace it with something that is equally as bad. Good Idea on paper, poorly executed delivery.

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

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

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

@4R6GW9Hfrom New Jersey  answered…2yrs

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 not get appropriate

@4V9SWMMfrom Arizona  answered…2yrs

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.

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.

@4RV5KMQfrom New York  answered…2yrs

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.

@4Y89PDJfrom Guam  answered…2yrs

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.

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.

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

@4WTMH3Wfrom California  answered…2yrs

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.

@4RVPH5Qfrom Arizona  answered…2yrs

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

@kmwhite59from California  answered…2yrs

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.

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

@4QJVPDMfrom Oregon  answered…2yrs

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.

I support the revitalizing and strengthening of something called The Hill-Burton Act of 1944, original healthcare-for-all bill, signed into law by then US President Harry S. Truman in August of 1944...Obamacare needs to be repealed and replaced with this law, a law already on the books!

@4QPNFD4from New York  answered…2yrs

Its a half measure that will never work. Either privatize or socialize it.

@4RCZ3GQfrom California  answered…2yrs

Health care is not a market commodity and should be considered a right like legal aid or public education. The ACA subsidizes private insurance companies with tax money, a form of corporate welfare. Single payer system, allowing for both public & private delivery, is preferable..

@4RHXY78from Maine  answered…2yrs

The Scandinavian way: people should pay out of their own pocket up to a certain limit after which healthcare gets covered by tax money.

We live in a world. Do you think our allies care. The acts do not cover everything. One time you go to the hospital is all it takes and your screwed! Free medical and college. Everyone one should go to an armed forces. Education is the BIGGEST discrimination.

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…2yrs

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.

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

@4RTCKHBfrom California  answered…2yrs

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.

The ACA, a Republican and conservative healthcare plan, was a gift to the for-profit healthcare system and insurance companies. Single payer healthcare is better.

NO, there should be no insurance company's and hospitals should be true at cost bills with the government to help those who cant pay it themselves. Cancer should be a fully government funded treatment only at cost of what it takes to produce and the ppls man hours to make and give it

it should not be mandatory to get health insurance but strongly recommended until the government could get hospitals and insurance companies to stop taking advantage of the people.
