    Oh plenty of people understand it.

    Through new Rules and Regulations a product was created and its purchase mandated by a ideology thats predisposed to ideological " redistributive " solutions instead of Free market solutions.

    That is, the Government created a product then mandated its purchase there by bypassing or subverting any free market mechanism that could lower cost and increase quality.

    ObamaCare is just redistribution. From the young and healthy to the old and sick. Problem is that comes with profound consequences. Economic consequences.

    Its a terrible and destructive law that was poorly considered by a President who doesn't have the knowledge or wisdom to know better.

    Re: Have you or a family member benefited from the Affordable Care Act?

    Well, thanks to the ACA, my brother's wife is alive and it looks like she might actually survive. AND, I was able to keep my son's insured through college. But, in all fairness, I think was able to do that anyways before ACA.

    As far as my personal experience, my deductable went up from 500.00 to 750.00 and 80/20 up to 10k. And my participation costs went up about 100.00 a month (for me and wife.)

    So, from my end, Obamacare kinda sucks. But, from my brother's end, Obamacare rocks. Am I my brother's keeper? Damn straight I am.

    Heaven forbid, but Obamacare might be a blessing to me, someday, too. But let's hope not.

    That's what all insurance is, and why I keep saying that conservatives shouldn't support ANY form of insurance. It's a socialistic system, even when it's not mandatory, and it was so even before Obamacare.

    With insurance, the policy holders all contribute to a pool, and that money is redistributed based upon an as needed based.

    So you are the very dramatic type huh? You're post is just an example of what I was talking about. All insurance is a type redistribution.

    Just an FYI

    Before ACA most health insurance plans would let you keep your college son or daughter on your plan only if they were a full time student and I think the cut off was 25 years old.

    Now you can keep your son or daughter on plan until they age 26 even if they are not in college and even if they are not living at home.
    When it comes to matters of reproduce health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    The ACA has only served to benefit big insurance companies. It's corporate welfare, basically. We should have gone single payer.

    I wish that the government would require that everyone purchase thousands of dollars a year of the products that I offer. It would make me much wealthier.
