    My view is the ACA is the best we are going to get but once its in effect corrections can be made as needed to make it better, if they repeal it and that is a long shot there is no replacement ready to go. And noone has proved it is going to hurt anyone it is just as likely with changes as it goes along to be a good law we won't know until its in effect and long enough to look at the issues it raises that need repair.

    Regardless, scottae316 said "government" (making no distinction between federal and state governments).

    Well this will be decided in November, if its not wanted Obama/Biden and the Senate Democrats will lose and the Republicans take over with one note the Democratic minority in the Senate (likely to be there) have the filibuster to use.

    So it comes down to that so any debate on the law which is largely declared constitutional, even the Medicaid expansion was not completely cut out just declared optional that fight is over the ACA is the law of the land.

    After November if the Senate and White House fall to the Republicans it can be talked about but only then since there is no debate otherwise the law will be enacted and nothing will prevent it.

    I think what AUTiger was trying to say was to help the helpless, not the clueless.

    The Presidential/Vice-presidential candidates have released their federal tax returns.

    What I find interesting is what they listed as medical expenses; around $14K/year for Romney (2 people), while Ryan (4 people), Biden (2), and Obama (4 people) list zero medical expenses.

    Since I listed around $12.5K for the last two years (2 people) I would like to switch to the current plan used by Ryan, Obama, and Biden.

    Romney isn't currently an elected official so he pays for his insurance. Elected officials clearly have a pretty nice health care plan.
