USA Today:"The ACA was not designed to reduce costs or, the law's name notwithstanding, to make health insurance coverage affordable for the vast majority of Americans," says health care consultant Kip Piper, a former government and insurance industry official. "The law uses taxpayer dollars to lower costs for the low-income uninsured but it also increases costs overall and shifts costs within the marketplace."
The government wished for clergy to promote the ACA as we were informed that it addressed inequality in our society's medical treatment options. Instead, it has created five million more people with no medical insurance coverage. I guess government can't be God, after all.
