  •  It *IS* an amazing law (10+ / 0-)

    OK, you say, "Many more people will be able to get health care."

    FULL STOP.

    SOMETHING is better than NOTHING.  The current health care system is fine IF, and only IF, you can access it somehow.  And if you can't, you're scr*wed.    If people get to see a nurse, that is BETTER than if they are surfing the Internet trying to research their own cures because they have no hope of seeing any health care professional of any kind.  

    As far as patients being fired from their current providers - that happens without the health care law!  The second you become unprofitable, out you go!  Don't blame Obamacare for that.  (And yes, it IS Obamacare.  We passed it ourselves, and thirty years from now when the Republicans try to take credit, everyone will know that this was OBAMACARE, and the Republicans did nothing but try to sabotage it.)

    "Ask your doctor...."  Do you have a doctor?  No?  Guess what - you might be able to see one under the new law!  WIN!!!!!

    •  Law vs implementation... (0+ / 0-)

      Never blamed Obamacare, but the implementation of is not something that should be applauded.

      If our bar is if you don't have a doctor or not, then I think we've definitely lost.

      Practices are dissolving because of the implementation, but if you have fine with a really low bar then sure.
