Who said anything about being dumped for an inferior plan? The plans that are getting dumped are rock bottom plans, and the likelihood is that the pool will offer better. And thankfully, Mr. Yeshua just demonstrated that very point.
Likelihood...but it's not guaranteed. This could, in the end, be a big mistake and no one can assuredly say otherwise. This is a risk for a lot of people. These are five articles alone that do not paint a pretty picture so far. I am sure I can find plenty more too.
Read through them, and I find most of them without any real good analysis.
There's almost this assumption being made by those articles that everythign that's happening is going to be static. It's not. It's a dynamic market place taht will change and evolve over time. This is especially true for our health care system. Single-payer would be so much better, but one thing the ACA does do is start addressing the problem of preventive care. Which is so much cheaper, and helps lower the costs of the health care in the country, for everyone.
Here's what happens under a system where we don't give everyone access to health care:
People who can't afford access to a doctor or get professional health care when they need it, end up ignoring things that are good to address. By not addressing them, they develop into more serious conditions. When this happens, something bad could happen, and this person ends up in an ER. At this point, you can either let people die if they don't have the money, or give them the care they need to survive. Letting them die is about the most unethical thing you can do, so we take care of them. This is always more expensive then it would have been if that same person got the issue checked out and noticed early. And, since they can't pay for it, someone has to find away to fill that gap. The way I think it was found in the old system is that hospitals charged insurance companies more for their procedures, thereby raising the premiums everyone else pays for their insurance. Meaning, of course, that in any civil society, in the health care market place, people who can afford access to health care will be paying for the people who can't afford access to health care.
This kind of problem is exactly why this country was founded. To promote the general welfare of this country.
Of course, all those news articles you linked to, or which were found in the blog, don't take this into consideration. They don't evaluate the 'problems' they're bringing up, they just put them out there. A lot of the problems brought up were problems before
the ACA, and it is a pure list of negative things, without any mention of the positives. Of those that are genuinly because of the ACA, there is no future analysis or even analysis of what kind of real effect that's going to have. It's a beginning, not an end.
