Broken record player. We have said the same things back to one another for months. More care guaranteed to more people does not mean cheaper care individually or overall.The only way to address the underlying cost will be to upgrade to UHC as the rest of the industrialized world has done. But this is America, and we are only capable of baby steps, apparently.
1) SCOTUS disagrees with that as the basis.That is how you see it from the far right. I see it as upholding the intent of the Constitution to promote the welfare of we the people.
2) Policies that make us poorer and make corporations which you argue were gouging us to begin with and erich add to our already exploding debt are directly contrary to the general welfare of the US.
That's THE problem that PPACA makes worse.Our medical care is almost twice as expensive as every other industrialized country
UHC isn't an upgrade. It just consolidates revenue collection and reimbursements. What it still leaves undone is price capping and rationing. Someone has to do that, and politicians won't because we'll destroy them if they do, so we will fail to contain costs until the debt it creates destroys us.That together with health care being the leading cause of bankruptcy in this country, will leave us no alternative but to eventually upgrade to UHC.
