Before Obamacare, we were allowed to shop for health care plans in other states. When Obama put Obamacare in place, the law took that ability away from the citizens. Obamacare and medicare should be repealed. There are many damaging factors about Obamacare. Because now you can be fined if you do not have insurance. It has made our taxes go up especially for the wealthy. It is making people lose their jobs and hours because businesses are cutting the workers’ hours to avoid covering the extra cost of employee insurance.
People should not have to pay for health insurance or be threatened with a large fine for not having it. It is intrusive for the government to require you to have insurance. Not all citizens in the United States need health care. Nor do all citizens believe in going to the doctor and taking medicine. There are also fine if you do not pay the outrageous prices of the premiums that will only continue to rise up to even more ridiculous prices costing the well of community even more money. “This act is making price for the cost of coverage blow up to bigger numbers. This will raise premiums for everyone” (Suderman). The Affordable care act and Obamacare are forcing the American citizens to pay for something they already can not afford and then charging them and making them pay fines for not being able to afford it and pay the dues. When the charges do not get paid by the said person it will get paid through the middle class and the upper-class citizens causing the taxes for them to rise because nothing is free.
The Affordable Care Act did not pop out of anywhere for free. It is costing people making taxes and costs higher for insurance that is not through the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. Many taxes were created and brought up in order to make the Affordable Care Act happen to help with the cost of it. This is costing the upper class more money and basically making them pay for the lower classes’ health and medical insurance. They are doing this by raising the taxes for them and taking more out of the people’s taxes for things and equipment such as pharmaceutical retail as well as medical devices. Many Americans and businesses are losing money over having to pay for this because of the cost of it tax-wise. Six hundred million dollars worth of taxpayers’ money was spent just trying to build up the affordable care act and Obamacare. Another six hundred and eighty-four million dollars in taxpayers’ good money was wasted just trying to advertise for the act. “It has caused more money to be spent for worse care. It has increased the raise of the deficit by $131 million “(Jenkins). The government is not and should not be responsible for the lower class to have health care. The middle class and upper class are not the only people this has negatively affected it has also affected many businesses and their employees. Many businesses can not afford to support their employees with insurance plans created by Obamacare. Obamacare has taken away employer-based insurance plans that companies and businesses have been with for ages. This makes insurance more expensive for them to a point some businesses can not produce the funds for. A business with fifty or more full-time employees must have available insurance. If the business does not they will be fined. If a business can not afford the insurance they were forced to get through Obamacare and are fined for not having it is morally wrong. Obamacare is setting many people up for a loss of money and for failure to go down in the economy. Obamacare and the affordable care act have put many people and businesses in the costly stressful money-wasting positions setting itself up for failure. Obamacare and medicare should be repealed. Being fined for not paying for insurance you can not afford because of the Obamacare and affordable care act is wrong in many ways and just another way that Obamacare knocks our nation down one step at a time. It has made taxes of those in the middle class and the upper class rise and cost more money for the insurance provided to the people after taking away their original insurance plans. Obamacare is not free insurance it is costing the people in the nation hurting those who have to pay more just to support the lower class citizens.
