Should It Stay Or Go? Experts and patients join Jack Fink CBS 11 to debate what should happen to the Affordable Care Act now. Among the panelists, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins and Retired Lt. Col. Allen West.
Famously, courtesy of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Obamacare was passed so that we could find what was in it. Not too many working class Americans have been thrilled by what was in it. Are you one of those? We were assured by President Barack Obama that we would save an average of $2,500.00 per year on health insurance. In this video, you will see an evenly balanced panel discuss the pros and cons of the Affordable Care Act. Before you watch the debate remember these 7 promises of the act:
#1: “If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep to health care plan, period.”
#2: “That means that no matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period.”
#3: “In an Obama administration, we’ll lower premiums by up to $2,500 for a typical family per year.”
#4: “For the 85 and 90 percent of Americans who already have health insurance, this thing’s already happened. And their only impact is that their insurance is stronger, better and more secure than it was before. Full stop. That’s it. They don’t have to worry about anything else.”
#5: “Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase.”
#6: “I will not sign a plan that adds one dime to our deficits—either now or in the future.”
#7: “So this law means more choice, more competition, lower costs for millions of Americans.”
The ongoing and nationwide exodus of insurers is just the latest piece of evidence that Obamacare is a failed law built on false promises. What can be done about the ACA, and who has the best idea? Do you want it fixed or replaced? Watch the debate and decide.
