I am a Health Insurance Agent. I am a professional who is at the sharp end of Health Insurance, both on and off the exchange. I have over 120 clients this year who have directly benefited from the ACA.I have not had 1 person who had to pay more than they was paying on a previous plan. Many small companys have had the best outcome they are now able to stop offering employer contributions thus saving money and their bottom line. Their employees for the most part get ATC that reduce the premium to much more affordable rates. There are som problems with the ACA but do not throw out the baby with the bath water. If you are against the ACA but have not taken the time to investigate the law in a pragmatic unbiased way you are doing yourself your family and the USA a disservice.

Did you know that sixty-six percent of Americans disapprove of ObamaCare?

You'd never know it if you watched the liberal media. Even as this horrendous healthcare law destroys jobs, increases our national debt and kicks more than 6 million Americans off of their current healthcare plans, the media prop up the president's signature healthcare law . . . this is blatant propaganda, and it must be stopped!

When the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office reported that ObamaCare will cause more than two million Americans to reduce their work hours or leave the workforce altogether, all three major networks (ABC, NBC and CBS) echoed the White House talking points that less hours for America workers is a good thing, since workers "are choosing to spend more time with their families."

In just 3 months, HealthCare.gov will have spent $52 million of your tax dollars on paid advertising to promote a program that the majority of Americans flat out don't want.

As the Administration institutes another delay in ObamaCare tailored around the November Congressional elections, not a single network evening newscast touched the story.

It's obvious that the liberal media have an agenda: to mend Obamacare's unraveling support while keeping the public in the dark about its damaging impact.

This is not journalism . . . it's left-wing propaganda designed to protect the Obama Administration and impose government-run healthcare on the American people. Take action now to help us stop it!

They said the same things about Social Security and Medicare Part D. Hal of the people does not benefit from ACA. ACA is designed to benefit those who had no health Insurance and those who had a policy but when they tried to use it they found it did not cover what they thought it did. ACA set standards for Insururs must meet.

Middle class and up will benefit as the cost of health care will decrease as everyone has Health InsuraNCE. Hospital Emergency Rooms will no longer have to provide free medical for the un-insured. That will benefit all Americans.
