    No, that would be the crony capitalism aspect via guaranteed profits; the income redistribution is via the PPACA exchange subsidies, Medicaid expansion and dropping all health care actuarial risk factors except for age and tobacco use.

    I only support some parts of it and not others.

    Re: Do you support Obamacare ?

    Supposedly, it was intended to cover Americans who were not previously covered.

    This sounds like baloney to me because if they REALLY wanted to cover those who were not covered (and little else) then all they had to do was bring forth a plan that would do just that...additional funds to cover the medical expenses of uninsured Americans (not saying I would be for that either - I would have to see it).
    It would have been far cheaper, far simpler and would probably have been able to be passed FAR easier.

    But no, they bring forth this gigantic, bloated whale that seems little more then Obama's best attempt to bring forth a general, government healthcare system.

    Obamacare is more 'government knows best' nonsense that (though sometimes well intentioned) is currently weighing down the U.S. (and most western+Japan) economies...the ridiculous notion that massively corrupt governments know better what to do with private citizens monies then they do.

    As the ACA has no effect on me whatsoever....I don't much care one way or the other. I will say however that this is the first year my premiums have not risen dramatically, and my grand daughter will likely benefit from it in time.

    I voted yes for these reasons.

    I support it because its better than what we had, covers more people, and forces the insurance companies to do the right thing.
    Except that it is not better than what we had (my policy is not). It covers some more people, but not a lot more. It isn't forcing hte ins. cos. to "do the right thing." It's forcing the rest of us to pay for free birth control pills for women well able to buy them, pay for high claims for those with pre-existing conditions (you know, all those people with diabetes who still eat pizza and don't exercise daily, but want someone to pay for their pill to make them feel better). It forces all of us to buy a product we can't alter to suit our needs.

    So it's better for some, worse for some. Sounds like you've decided the former are worth more than the latter. That's sort of like telling the fella whose healthy leg was cut off with a lot of other people not to worry about it, because one fella in the room needed his leg amputated. So it's a better plan, since it worked for that fella with the bad leg (even though you're minus a healthy leg). The bad leg fella being more important than the good leg fella, I suppose.

    Actually, Obamacare only helps TWO groups. The insurance companies and big government proponents. The insurance companies have a government-mandated market they can play around in and they don't even have to compete with each other. The big government proponents have succeeded, in one more area, in being allowed to tell people what they MUST do...whether they want to or not. That's the only reason Democrats are in bed with the insurance companies.

    This mirrors my feelings. It's better than doing nothing, and so far, nothing is the only alternative I've seen put forward to compete with it, so for the moment I'm in favor. As soon as someone suggests something better, I'm happy to get rid of it.
