Obamacare was a idealistic plan that never reached its full potential. Perhaps, when originally proffered to Congress, Obamacare was a clean, sleek bill that would help a nation in need. Once all of the addendums were added on, however, it turned into a terrible monster. Obamacare does not function for my family, a low income family, and it drives hospitals to raise prices and drives wages down. Obamacare needs to get out, and a single payer system needs to be introduced.
Yes, Colorado would be making a good decision by implementing a single-payer system and getting rid of Obamacare. Obamacare has been terribly expensive and has not benefited people in the way in which the government claimed it would. A single-payer system would be much better since everyone would be insured and have access to the medical care they need.
By allowing the state to pay for healthcare, it has a single entity in charge of all standards and rules, rather than private insurers who may find ways around the rules and increase premium prices. It is the government's responsibility to provide for its citizens, not pass the job onto private entities.
Getting rid of Obamacare is not the right decision and Colorado should not implement a single payer system. It is confusing for state residents to follow different health plans, so we need to have a consistent uniform national plan for health care. It in same way as same sex marriage and legalized marijuana use, the states need to have uniform laws.
