The only argument for eliminating Obamacare are the costs to government--not the policy holders as they'd have you believe. Let's have a look at that.
According to the "Committee For a responsible Federal Budget" (10/19/2016)--"By FY 2026, the latest year that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) makes projections for specific programs, Obamacare would still be sixth at $252 billion, behind Social Security ($1.6 trillion), Medicare ($1.1 trillion), defense ($719 billion), interest ($712 billion), and non-ACA Medicaid ($477 billion). Thus, over the next decade, Obamacare will fall further behind the fifth largest program both in dollar terms and, to a lesser extent, as a percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP)."
The thing to keep in mind the budgeted amount is covered by premiums, higher taxes on those earning above $200,000 and penalties on those refusing to buy insurance for themselves.
How much you say will it cost to eliminate Obamacare completely? Well according to CNN Money--"Fully repealing Obamacare will cost $350 billion over the next 10 years. Obamacare was carefully crafted in 2010 so that it didn't add to the federal deficit -- in fact, it boosted revenues slightly. The law affects the federal budget in three ways: coverage provisions, taxes and fees, and Medicare components."
(2) As you can see from the actual facts Obamacare is not bankrupting the government. In fact it does the opposite. It nearly (if not all) pays for itself.
(3) Opponents point out how high the deductibles are. I provided one link showing they are just as high as those currently in the private sector. I urge readers to do similar research. They will find the same thing I'm certain.
(4) Some miscellaneous downsides in changing Obamacare. Lifetime coverage caps could return. Preexisting conditions could be treated the way they were before Obamacare making them highly unaffordable. Many plans employers were required to provide will cease to exist.
(5) Recall the good old days before Obamacare was enacted on March 23, 2010? Bet everyone has a tale of woe.
(2) Tweak the shortcomings in the current plan.
(3) Force the Congress members to take the same plan they wanna give us.
For every dollar not budgeted for Obamacare each will be shifted somewhere else. Everyone should think long and hard how those redistributions will affect each of us in some way.
The hell they don't. Take for example someone undergoing cancer treatment. No drug company or hospital is going to give away $35,000-$100,000 a month treatments and services.. PERIOD!
