What Will It Cost the US if Obamacare is Repealed?

Hello again,

Health care is quite a hot topic.

I suppose if you are affluent, it is perhaps a non-issue.  You may always have enough to pay for the very best care.

National Public Radio (NPR) blogger Eyden Peralta posted a report from the Congressional Budget Office, based on the Supreme Court ruling, which estimates costs for the implementation of the  Affordable Care Act (ACA) also known as Obamacare.  Apparently, the healthcare plan will save the U.S. $84 billion over 11 years.  If it is repealed, it might cost the country over $1 trillion.

This is a complicated subject.  But it is worth listening to the various opinions if  the outcome will affect you, your loved ones, your friends, and the country.

May we all stay well enough to never need serious medical attention,
