Pro to the question "Is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Good for America?"
"Polls show that Americans remain divided over whether health reform will leave them better or worse off. President Obama said that if you like your current coverage, you can keep it, but many are skeptical. Looking at reform from a personal perspective, what should each of us expect?
Despite all of the drama over reform, most of us will actually feel very little direct effect. Over half of all Americans receive coverage from an employer, and that will stay the same, at least in the short-run. The major change is that the coverage will be better. There will be no annual or lifetime limits on benefits, more coverage of preventive care, and the option to keep dependent children on your policy up to age 26."
