Con to the question "Is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Good for America?"
"If you like the health insurance coverage you have now, and if you believe patients should be allowed to make their own decisions about their medical care and insurance coverage, ObamaCare is not for you.
In addition to the fact that the supreme law of the land, our U.S. Constitution, does not authorize the government takeover of medicine, or government intrusion and meddling in the practice of medicine, ObamaCare will make medical care:
- Less affordable
- It will destroy innovation in the insurance market
- Less accountable to patients
- It will discriminate against those who believe in self-reliance and working hard to get ahead
- It will put our budget and economy on a path of unsustainable debt and destruction."
