Is "Obamacare" really that good for the nation or not? It's supposedly going to take effect in 2014, iirc.
When "Obamacare" first became a hot topic I was interested in hearing the pros and cons of the movement, yet shortly thereafter I lost all interest because, quite simply, there was too much info and too much bias. As with most issues, I would see articles on the same subject, yet have completely different and biased accounts. So, I gave up on poring into the "depths" because the truth, apparently, was kept so obscure. Hidden, basically.
So now that I'm bored with the other dead horse issues, I'd like to bring up this issue, since it's one I haven't put much focus on.
Is "Obamacare", or should I say National Healthcare, good for our nation or not? I want to know the actual facts, and the most pertinent data. I have heard far too many things that are negative about NHC, from there being death panels, to being a means to bring about "socialism." Likewise, equally clueless liberals defend Obamacare with equally biased claims. So, what is it? How am I to deduce what the actual facts are? Is it true that people can be fined/jailed for refusing to be a part of Obamacare? If so, that';s really bad, right? Or is it not so bad, since we all must have car insurance to drive, thus making it odd to accept having the requirement of car insurance yet not health insurance.
Is it true that this care will be like Canada, and that if you're older/less useful you'll have to wait in a long line for care?
How, exactly, is this going to affect me?
