Obamacare is a government initiated mandate requiring health care to meet certain standards in able to be sold to consumers. This act also necessitated health insurance among citizens of the US, granting those who ignore these demands monthly fines and eventually jail time. I, as well as the standard principles of freedom, disagree with this bill.
I believe Obamacare is a gross invasion of rights. The fact that the government requires its citizens to spend their money in a certain fashion or become a fugitive of the law seems unconstitutional and in contrast to the theme of our free country. If I chose to abandon civilization, living in the woods off nuts and berries, I would be considered a tax evading criminal and would be apprehended by the US government thanks to the Obamacare act.
Another flaw of Obamacare is the financial aid it provides towards low-income citizens. While generous, any money thrown around by the government originates from the tax paying Americans, and is therefore taken from us. I do not endorse my family’s hard-earned wages going towards government bail outs, and believe that all insurance industries, as well as many other government-run corporations, should be entirely abolished/privatized, leaving government to oversee the building of roads, schools, etc. as well as municipal justice.
In conclusion, Obamacare was an unjust and unconstitutional bill that was, in my opinion, rightly abolished. It both robbed Americans of their freedom and their hard-earned wage. By my reckoning, the only way to completely terminate corrupt acts such as this one is to completely privatize government branches like the insurance division. But until then, Trump has America on the right track.
