The most recent estimates on the Affordable Care Act show that it’s projected cost is DOWN not UP (see Paul Krugman in the NYT today for the data). I guess the GOP and conservative cartoonists have to make up lies about it, since there’s a lot of good stuff in the ACA. It’s a God-send for self-employed folks like me.And Dr Who, this is not government-run, or even government paid for. ACA leaves insurance to be run by private companies. And mikefive, only about 20% of Americans want ACA repealed. Most people wish it went farther, making repeal a losing issue for the GOP.
