Pro to the question "Is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) Good for America?"
"[T]here are millions [of] reasons to celebrate Obamacare...
-- That's how many Americans — i.e., all of us — potentially benefit from the requirement that insurance companies provide flu shots, HIV screenings, prostate exams, mammograms and FDA-approved contraception for free, without a co-pay.
-- Plus, we all benefit from new requirements that insurance companies must spend at least 80% of our premium dollars on our health care as opposed to marketing or administration.
-- We all benefit from the new requirement that insurance companies publicly justify their actions if they want to raise premiums by 10% or more.
-- We all benefit from knowing that our insurance can now never be capped or canceled at the whim of insurance companies...
Every day, as we all see the benefits of health care reform in our lives, support for Obamacare will grow stronger. Before long, not even the most partisan Republicans will be able to attack it."
