It is 907 pages long. You will never read it, probably, you might flip through it.. but many will not ever go to this page online and see what it is. The Affordable Care Act, ACA, is like any government act in that it goes through many stages to become a law. First, it must be read, no?
Maybe if we posted the pages of our ACA on walls of buildings and on lampposts, people would read it. That's it, ACA has no street credit:
“ ... Nancy Pelosi waxed rhapsodic in 2010 as she imagined the benefits of Obamacare: “Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or a writer without worrying about keeping their day job in order to have health insurance.”( BEN SCHACHTER. Tuesday, September 9, 2013. LINK) ... "SUMMARY
Insurance companies have read it, or at least their in-house lawyers have. " ... Insurance providers are reporting cancellations. The Entertainment Industry Group Insurance Trust (TEIGIT) website posts the following notice: “All individual and/or Sole Proprietor Health Insurance will terminate January 1, 2014. This includes plans acquired as Members of our Affiliated Associations and their groups.” Those affiliated associations include the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, the Dramatists Guild, the Graphic Arts Guild, NY Women in Film and Television, and many others. (BEN SCHACHTER. Tuesday, September 9, 2013. LINK)..."
Collusion between insurance companies and health care providers, that is, between doctors and lawyers, has been interrupted. ACA will take the middle man out of the picture, maybe.
To most of us middle Americans and lower earning Americans Health Care has been un-affordable all our natural born lives. Probably, under ACA rules, some people who never even had healthcare will now receive some, and the rich will go ahead with self-insured models. For the middle class it will be business as usual.
"...Pelosi’s vision of a world full of carefree artists, musicians, and writers is a mirage and becoming fainter the closer we get to January 1. The unfortunate freelancers out there who are losing their insurance because of Obamacare now have one more thing to worry about. They may want to start looking for a day job.(BEN SCHACHTER.
