Most people in America want affordable healthcare for all persons. They want healthcare equality if that means quality care for people who are sick. Healthcare equality does not mean that a person with means cannot pursue a nose job if they want. It means consistent care among the general population. Of course, there are tradeoffs in all healthcare systems because healthcare supply is not unlimited. That means, decisions are made in the system about who receives care first as there is a prioritization. That is true today, but in Obamacare the question is who make the priorities and who make the decisions, you and your doctor or some other rules?
In the Politico story today, there is a picture of a woman holding a sign, “We love Obamacare.”
How does she know? She could say, “We love the concept of Obamacare,” and that would be more accurate. Without implementation and testing, we don’t know.
Now, if Congress was truly doing its job, all laws and regulations would be tested through simulation before being enacted. That is a concept worth pondering.
Laws and regulations can be modeled and simulated to determine the theoretical performance outcomes and metrics before they are enacted to ensure that they are correct. That way Congress can work out the bugs.
However, with the present Congress, Republicans want to throw up their hands and wait for a wreck that they are hoping for. That isn’t right and America knows it.
Obamacare isn’t a political campaign, it is an operational system that is on the critical path for all Americans as it affects our daily lives as if our lives depend upon it.
If the GOP is predicting failure and the GOP is in charge of the House of Representatives, then that failure is on their doorstep, is it not?
“Launching the Obamacare campaign

President Barack Obama brought a campaigner’s mindset to the White House — but the roll-out of Obamacare marks the first time he’s adapted his campaign’s groundbreaking grassroots tactics to the task of turning policy into reality.
A trio of Obama’s most experienced campaign operatives — one in the West Wing, two others in outside groups closely allied with Obama — are overseeing an effort to ensure that the Affordable Care Act, the president’s biggest legacy project, doesn’t turn into the failure the GOP predicts it will be.
