FRSFreeStatePlus: For anyone who actually reads the Affordable Care Act and understands it, you'll see that its about expanding. Through the private Health Insurance Industry, Health Insurance for people who currently can't afford it, through a Tax Credit for individuals, as well as a Tax Credit for employers who want. To provide Health Insurance for their employees but simply can't afford to cover them, it actually gives private Health Insurers more customers but what it does it regulates them with what's called a Patents Bill of Rights. So individuals can no longer lose their Health Insurance because they simply need it, get sick, have a Pre Existing Condition, or reach some time limit or financial cap. Democrats wanted to include a Public Option, not Single Payer, which is what Progressive Democrats wanted but what Liberals such as myself. Wanted to do was to allow individuals who aren't seniors yet, to be able to buy into Medicare, so we could have younger healthier patients that are covered by Medicare but no one by law or anything else. Is being forced to give up their current Health Insurance to take Medicare, the ACA is not a government takeover of healthcare as Right Wingers like to call it.
