Obamacare: A Dream. The Reality.The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), referred to as the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and sometimes Obamacare, is a United States federal statute signed into law by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010. The law mandates United States citizens to obtain health insurance coverage, and businesses of 50 or more full time employees to provide health insurance to their employees. Should you not be covered, or a business as outlined prior not provide health insurance coverage options, a penalty will be imposed.
The concept of providing every person in the United States affordable healthcare was groundbreaking, significant, and momentous. However, the implementation of the program had found a number of complications that, to quote the dinosaur from 2007 movie, Meet the Robinsons, “I’m just not sure how well this plan was thought through.” After this impressively large document was passed, the Obamacare press campaign has been very successful in providing only the positive aspects of this historic healthcare program without discussing even the possible negatives. That is to be expected of any public relations campaign. In its current state, the downside of this program has a strong impact on medium to small-sized businesses. Companies had to make adjustments in order to accommodate the ACA.Order now
The predictions are that the ACA’s impact will negatively affect the U.S. economy. In the end, a plan to help the people who need the help the most, has created some tremendous challenges for them, as well as for U.S. business.
According to Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, “by the end of Open Enrollment in 2014, more than 15 million Americans who didn’t have health insurance before the ACA . .cy care” services. Larger offices, longer wait times and less personal care for the patient. An Act that is to provide every US citizen with affordable health care, has only provided health care coverage — that isn’t even affordable, has caused less medical options, higher fees, and bearers of the plan delay or abstain from obtaining medical care. If the program truly provides affordable care for everyone, why does the government penalize people for not using it, or, conversely, wouldn’t everyone sign up in an instant.
Because The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act doesn’t provide affordable care.Perhaps it is time for the government’s continual punishment on U.S. business and hard-working TAX PAYERS to stop. Perhaps it is time for government to find and provide real incentives for businesses, physicians and the consumer in order for all to be healthy.
