The Affordable Care Act is a law that beneficial for millions of Americans. Not all laws are perfect and more work still needs to be done. The law is a step forward into the right direction by providing those who weren't able to get health insurance before can now obtain health insurance. It creates an even level playing field where woman doesn't have higher premiums just because she is a woman and people with preexistent conditions can obtain health care.
Although the law is providing the sick with health care it is relying on the healthy to pay for these expenses. The law can only work if enough people sign up in order to balance the scale and as of now it has not reached the desired numbers. Insurance premiums have severely increased for everyone including those that are not even sick. Even those that choose not to sign up are forced to either get an exemption from the law or pay a fee. Not all can afford these increases in premiums and fees.
P1: Medicaid, the will be used to pay for many people's health care, will be using federal and state funds that could be used for other issues.
P2: Businesses that staff over 50 full time employees will be required to provide health care which, in terms of small businesses, will require cuts in employee hours.
C: The Affordable Care Act is not a beneficial piece of legislation.
