The Affordable Care Act is actively providing health care insurance to the population at large and subsidizing those who would otherwise not be able to afford it. So the smear campaign in Florida should be used as a litmus test. Those who engaged in it were not on the side of the people and were trying to deter them from getting the insurance they need and deserve.
Yes, public opinion through campaign ads smearing the Affordable Care Act should be used as a measurement for upcoming senate elections in November 2014, because there should always be those who help with marketing for campaigns. Those people should always be looking at public opinion for clues as to how to win the election and what people think.
I hope the upcoming elections don't include smear campaigns against the Affordable Care Act. I know I won't be voting for any politicians who stand against the Affordable Care Act. Make amendments and changes and be honest about what you think is wrong, specifically. If you are against providing equal health care, then I'm against you.
No they shouldn't be allowed to be used as a measurement. Why should they be allowed to hurt the people that need it the most. Young and sick people need insurance also. We shouldn't discriminate against the ill like it has been done in the past. Yes it is discrimination when you don't want to provide health insurance to all of the people in this country.
