When people get sick and can't pay their medical bills the rest of us have to make it up in higher healthcare costs. With this they will have to pay just like everybody else.
When people get insurance knowing they are already sick the rest of us pay for it with higher insurance premiums. With this they will have to have coverage before they get sick.
When people talk about how this country offers the best healthcare in the world it is shot down by the fact that it doesn't matter how many people in this country can't afford access to that great healthcare. This will make it so that every American has access to that healthcare.
This legislation does great things for America. Instead of going with socialized healthcare like the rest of the world they have created a new system that is a better fit for the American people. It is politically flawed because it does not respect certain rights of the people. But the people wanted it anyway. Democrats and Republicans shaped it in to what it is today because the people wanted it. Thanks to the Republicans there is no "public option" or state run health insurance program included, so anything related to those concerns are null and void.
If you already have insurance you're already paying for it. If you don't have insurance you're going to forced to pay your share. Even those that get their insurance subsidized will be forced to pay more in to the healthcare system than they would have if they got sick without this. In many ways it holds more to Republican ideals than it does Democratic ideals otherwise it really would have been socialized.
This legislation works to solve a real problem in this country without pandering to the social welfare ideals of the rest of the modern world. If it fails you can blame it on the Democrats, if it succeeds the Republicans can take credit for the bipartisan effort. So it's a win-win for the political right in the long run.
The majority of the people wanted it. Both sides designed and approved it. The Supreme Court upheld it. Deal with it!
Or threaten to move to Canada out of pure disgust, because that is a hilarious response to this situation.
