Marco Rubio votes to gut Obamacare with no replacement. Is it time to do away with Obamacare?

  • People don't like it.

    If you scroll through your Facebook friends for comments about Obamacare, they are negative. Friends complain that the policies have way too high of a premium. Then, they have a very high deductible, so there's no chance that you ever see any benefits from your health care. It's got to go.

  • Yes, it is time to do away with Obamacare.

    Health insurance rates have skyrocketed along with a decrease in coverage for most plans. This is because many people who only go to the doctor once or twice a year when they really need to are paying higher out of pocket expenses. The only people benefiting from Obamacare are the healthcare facilities and the insurance companies.

  • Obamacare is vital to keeping American insured and healthy.

    The Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, is providing insurance and health care to 30 millions Americans that lacked health care access prior to it being enacted. To end the program without a suitable replacement would put all these people at risk as well as damaging the insurance companies that are on the ACA exchanges.

  • Affordable Health Care should stay

    Affordable Health Care is a great idea and taking it away means killing thousands of people that don't have enough money to pay for Health Care themselves. Many people don't agree with Obama Care because it is there is a chance that the middle class may lose there doctor. I understand that losing your doctor might be bad but not as bad as if you had not enough money to get a new one.

  • No, I don`t think so.

    The scale of the losses at stake for Obamacare is staggering. A study by the Urban Institute estimates that a repeal would result in almost 30 million Americans losing their health coverage. Research on loss aversion thus suggests that the repeal would precipitate a political firestorm of epic proportions. Republicans have promised to replace Obamacare with something better. Everyone, Mr. Trump included, insists that any plan must require insurers to offer affordable coverage to people with pre-existing health conditions. But that’s not possible financially unless the insured pool includes predominantly healthy people. And because many healthy people won’t buy insurance unless they are required to do so, no developed country relegates its health coverage entirely to unregulated private insurance markets

If you look at the budget measure combined with Trumps executive order Obamacare has already been removed, at least for the next 4 years.
