Whether you are for or against the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare the first week enrollment was opened history was made.
An estimated 2.8 million Americans went online to inquire or purchase the new insurance plan causing many delays and in some instances causing the internet to crash.
Millions of Americans can now shop for affordable health insurance at affordable and competitive rates, allowing those who haven’t been able to have preventative health care now find it a reality. Hopefully more preventive care will allow lower health costs instead of having to avoid preventive care and ending up in the emergency room or finding you have waited too long for a cure.
The thrust of this bill is not another welfare bill, but for the millions of Americans who work hard, pay their taxes, raise a family, but can’t afford health coverage, certainly peace of mind for any parent.
Their will be horror stories, glitches, and the bill will probably be amended, but this is the first start in attempting to curb rising health costs. Only time will tell what the future of this bill will be.
