Our family falls in the cracks of healthcare. He does not get it on the job and I am a student and we make too much to qualify for Medicaid. It would be nice to have options.

I hope it is overturned!! My son and son-in-law both work in private industry (electricians) and there Insurance went up drastically over the past 2 years (about 75 percent Higher) than in 2009, I thought this was suppose to help the lower/middle income!! There insurance went from about 4,500 a year to almost 7,500 a year in the process of 2 years, they don't make a big salary either (under 40k a yr). This heath care bill that was sold to the American people was a lie, this is why personal salaries are dropping like a rock, with everything else going up. This is just a way to pay for people that are on medicare/medicaid.

I hope it gets overturned.  There are a few provisions I like....like keeping your kid on through 26 and no pre-existing conditions.  They just went about it all wrong with mandatory funding.

I think it will be overturned because of the mandate. I wish that there were better answers to health care. There are lots of problems with the insurance system, but I am not sure health care for everyone would work either. I can tell you that the Health Care Law has no made things better in the health care industry, but we need to find ways to fix some things (like pre-existing conditions). Hope we are up to dealing with it as a people, because our politicians sure don't have the will to

 :wave: i think if we let government mandate health insurance what will be next? america is supposed to be the land of freedom of choice, well if our choice on health care is taken away i just feel it will be just the start of more choices being take away. i think if the health care is left as is and obama is re-elected it will lead to more and more mandates. the next thing you know we are no longer u.s.a. but the new u.s.s.r. i think obama will try more government regulations on business and industry. the next thing you have is a socialist-communist state instead of free marketand free choice that has been the back bone of our great country. the old saying you give and inch they take a mile next thing you know less and less choices and more and more goverment. revoke health-care mandate and elect any one besides obama to another term

I hope it gets overturned. I went in a read some of it and it is down right scary for us seniors. Also for all up and comming youngsters. If it had been read and parts knocked out it, then the good parts would have been ok. But why should we buy it if we don't want it ( and then be fined when we don't) We already are forced to buy auto insurance. But the dunder blocks when they were in power just listened to Nancy P. when she said pass it then read it. Idiots.

Hopefully it is overturned. Health Insurance costs have went up across the board because of it.

Riiiight - because the massive increases in healthcare costs prior to 2012 were somehow related to it nevertheless, (doubtless by the same sort of republican-imagined "Einstein-Rosen bridge" via which they blame democrats for stuff which occurred with a republican in executive office).

I just qualified to get Medicare, due to being on disability.  They are forcing me join now, or pay a 25% late registration fee, if I join later.  The amount I have to pay per month is totally insane.  I worked to 40years before becoming disabled and now I have to join when they say and pay what the tell me too, or otherwise get penalized.  This stinks.
