Lies, lies, lies

I received an email from the NC GOP concerning the Affordable Care Act. In it they said; "It’s killing jobs, hurting our economy, raising premiums, and limiting health care access." Lies, Lies. Lies.

Judging from the results achieved by a Republican administration in North Carolina and the U.S. House of Representatives, their interest in jobs is just as shallow as their understanding of "Obamacare.”

The economy will not be hurt by a healthier population, by the creation of more health care jobs to assure this or by the savings in health care costs it will produce by limiting the profits of insurance companies and by improving and coordinating the provision of primary care.

A study of health care premiums of policies offered state ACA marketplaces just released by the Kaiser Foundation found that premiums are reduced and are lower than original estimates.

How the ACA will reduce access by making health care available to millions of the uninsured in the nation and by expanding medicaid in states not governed by retrograde state governments like North Carolina can only be explained by someone with an impaired attachment to reality, i.e., the NC GOP.

    Coulson’s interpretation of the Kaiser report is inaccurate. There will be winners and losers under the ACA.

    Because of various mandates, sicker older people, especially those with pre-existing conditions, will have more choices and better prices.

    Younger, healthier people will pay more, primarily due to the law’s requirement that their rates can not be less than 1/3 of the highest rates. they used to be much less expensive.
