The Demise of Obamacare
A writer over at City Journal takes a look at claims that repealing the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is going to be a disaster. He points out that part of Obamacare enrollment was people signing on to Medicaid and over 70% of those enrollees already qualified for Medicaid before Obamacare and they should remain qualified. Still, he points out "...Medicaid programs are burdening the federal government and driving states to the financial brink.". That seems to me unlikely to change.
As far as the subsidies to buy private insurance goes, he notices those programs seem to be falling apart on their own with no help from Donald Trump: " Insurers are abandoning the exchanges, leaving 68 percent of U.S. counties with two or fewer insurers to choose from"- this being caused, I would think in large part, by insurance companies covering those they normally wouldn't.
He closes with a largely negative, seems to me, view of Obamacare: "Trump and the Republican Congress should ignore ACA bogeymen. Repealing most of the ACA, retaining a few provisions, and replacing programs in 2018 will rid the country of one the most contentious, complex, and wasteful pieces of social engineering ever enacted—and set the stage for a more efficient, consumer-centered health-care system."
To be honest, I've been fairly content with my Obamacare plan, aside from my local doctor not accepting it. Not sure what I'd do if I was ruled ineligible for my plan.
