Have a cup of chocolate, it is good for you. Enjoy your Affordable Care Act because Obamacare is working too. As Election 2014 is approaching and there has been an avalanche of trash talking about the government and President Obama, the Affordable Care Act implementation has smoothed out and it is working.
The big news is that the law has not been a jobs disaster at all. Conservatives who simply don’t want to pay for social programs cannot justify their criticism because the benefits outweighed the potential harm. American businesses that are responsible to their workers and to the nation just got with the program.
Conservative Republicans who are always intent on dismantling programs that help the majority of Americans and are on critical path to ensuring a good life for all will never be repealed by Republicans, even if they have a moment of political majority in the Congress. The reason is that when voters do the calculating and assessment upon themselves and their families, they can readily find necessity and benefit that they are willing to pay for.
In the instance of Social Security, taxpayers know that it is their own money that they are receiving in allocated distribution. Surely, they want to see a good rate of return on the fund that they established to ensure solvency. That doesn’t mean that they need or want privatization.
The story here is about the Affordable Care Act. It could just as well be about the entire social services package that Americans enjoy including Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
Conservative Republicans are called upon to make these programs work and to ensure their funding, and not to dismantle them.
If you have been to the ER lately, look around, there are vastly fewer uninsured persons awaiting walk-in treatment because they are at the doctor’s office with Affordable Healthcare Insurance instead. The doctors are enjoying the program too for ease of administration. It is a win-win.

An analysis was conducted by a team of reporters and data researchers to rate the success of the Affordable Care Act after being in place for more than a year now. It was found that the act has been a success at least in terms of fulfilling the main promises made by President Obama. Though, it has also been weak in some ways and paved a way for a powerful conservative backlash.
There were a lot of speculations of late that health-care reform will turn out to be disaster for tax-payers and consumers. But nothing of that sort happened.
The Congressional Budget Office has said that $100 billion dollars will be reduced in the federal budget deficit by the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, despite adding heath coverage for about 10 million people. The reform has been able to achieve this feat as a result of accomplishment of one of its key goals, which was to bring down the cost of health care.
Van de Water said, “The growth of health-care costs has been at close to historic lows, both in the public programs, that is Medicare and Medicaid, as well as the private sector”.”
