The Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare, is not healthcare and does not guarantee one will receive good healthcare. It does not even guarantee people will receive good insurance and it is by no means affordable. To this date, more people have lost healthcare coverage, due to the ACA, than have enrolled in new insurance. Many are forced to pay higher premiums to keep their plans or losing their plans altogether and are force to accept one of the government’s managed plans or opt for no insurance and pay the government fine.
Wording is important. There is a reason the preamble to the Constitution was written "provide for the common defense" and "promote [not provide] the general welfare." The government is to provide defense for the country and support the general welfare of its people, but not provide.
The federal government was not created to care for the individual; the federal government was created to attend to foreign affairs and affairs of the country as a whole. Thomas Jefferson on general welfare clause: They are not to lay taxes ad libitum for any purpose they please; but only to pay the debts or provide for the welfare of the Union.
Robert Yates, who wrote anti-federalist papers under the name “Brutus,” predicted the abuse of vague clauses, particularly of the "general welfare" clause, as we see happening, and by the Supreme Court. The founders assumed the Constitution would be followed as written, but Brutus correctly predicted that future leaders & the Supreme Court would abuse their powers to "interpret" the Constitution where “promote” has become conflated with “provide.” This liberal, and incorrect, “interpretation” allows for a large, tyrannical government in control of all aspects of citizen's lives, which is what neither the federalists nor the anti-federalists envisioned. It was never the intention for the federal government to “provide” for the individual.
Creating an atmosphere of complete dependence on the government, that government has complete control over American citizens, is tyrannical. It is the antithesis of what this great country stands for. It enables people to become mindless, apathetic cattle. It is destructive. It is not what out founders wanted for our country. ObamaCare is nothing more than government control. It is not affordable and it does not guarantee accessible healthcare. It is not justice for government to force its control over your healthcare. It is despotism and it is evil. ObamaCare, is just a step in Obama's plan to change "We the people" to "we the slaves of the government."
