Dave Curson on Health Care

 

 


ObamaCare was timely and necessary

Passage of the Affordable Health Care Act was timely and necessary as more and more American families fell out of health care coverage. The highest rate of individual bankruptcies is directly related to health care costs. The Act is not perfect but did bring necessary change. Insurance companies no longer are able to deny coverage due to pre-existing conditions, to charge women more or to drop coverage to those who do get sick. More than 105 million Americans will continue to benefit from the elimination of lifetime limits and the coverage of preventive services without cost sharing. More than six million young adults will be able to stay on their parents' health care plans that cannot obtain a plan on their own.

If all of the great minds in Washington concentrated on finding the deficiencies in the Affordable Care Act, all Americans would reap the benefits of the Act. Instead the Republican House has wasted valuable congressional time by repeatedly attempting to repeal the Act.
