The "Affordable" Care Act

This is the most ill-labeled legislation ever. This makes health care ANYTHING but “affordable.” The first thing it did was cancel the insurance coverage people HAD, and FORCED them to buy policies at costs that DOUBLED, even TRIPLED their premiums, or pay a fine. They made one mistake, though; the fines weren't high enough to keep people from just paying the fine and not buying their crap. Premiums continued to go higher and higher while the outfits tasked with making the thing work kept closing. Insurance companies went out of the health care insurance business all over. The whole thing is collapsing before our eyes, and Trump is trying to fix it, WITHOUT the cooperation of the Republicans while the dumocrats are just blocking his every effort. The Dumocrats are trying to blame Trump for the failure, but aren't making much headway, there. They've been too obviously against everything trump stands for. (US News & World Report)
