The fight is heating up - again. Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare as it is called. There are ardent followers and opponents. You may find varied opinions based on who you talk to:
- Insurance companies
- Physicians - opinions also vary depending on their specialty; primary care or specialist.
- Pharmaceutical companies, biotech companies
- Medicare and Medicaid recipients
- Single Moms
- Young unemployed, uninsured, between the ages of 21-26
- Minorities, hispanics
- Aging population
Without getting into the debate of whether or not Obamacare is good, I have to say President Obama has the guts to shake things up, try something new, try to make it better. When you attempt anything new, there are going to problems, growing pains, and adjustments. But unless you try, things never improve.
