Even in a perfect world, the ACA would not give coverage to all Americans. In a perfect world, when the law is fully implemented, the Congressional Budget Office estimates 31 million Americans – or about 10 percent of the population - will still lack coverage. Of course that number is smaller than the 47 million Americans who lacked insurance before the law came into place, but it’s still substantial.
Affordable healthcare for everyone should be our priority in the USA. I'm an RN in a hospital and have 40 years in the profession. It can be done. We can look to so many other countries with this already in place.
Universal healthcare is a marker of civilization and should be a primary goal in the US. As a person who's benefited from Obamacare since turning 26, I want a better bill that helps more people by giving them more affordable healthcare, but abolishing the ACA is not the answer. Please work with your fellow reps to find a better path forward to universal healthcare.
