> It is not the same as single payer
Hey look, you took the words right out of my mouth!
> He campaigned on health care reform everyone called the ACA health care reform, what we got was impotent insurance company reform.
Man, you are really saving me a lot of effort, making my points for me.
> the republicans and the tea party fought very strongly to any change in the status quo.
You’re wrong about that part. The republicans and tea party want deregulation and consumer choice. The HSA solution is also very popular among most republican candidates. Giving people control of and responsibility for their own health care dollars will lead to better decision making and more efficient spending.
> You are saying that the ACA is exactly what the democrats and Obama wanted, and perfectly aligns with Obama’s intentions for our health care system.
If it isn’t what they wanted, they shouldn’t have voted on it. More importantly, the issue I keep raising (which you keep dodging) is how populist, pandering liars like the guy in the video keep equating obamacare to health care, which it has nothing whatsoever to do with. It tricks casual readers/viewers into believing they are supporting a law that helps poor people “get health care”.
When you support the ACA and refer to it as a health care law (not saying you specifically call it a health care law, but others in this thread do) you continue to muddy the waters and confuse the issue. Some people do it intentionally because they are just liars (like the other guy I was responding to) but others do it without realizing it.
