Give the new health care plan a chance

If you tell a lie over and over, some people are going to start to believe it.

That is what the Republicans are doing with the ACA, the Affordable Care Act. They are telling lie after lie, and getting away with it. I just hope people will realize it sooner rather than later.

Every new program has taken time to get all of the kinks out. That includes Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. But no, we can’t give the ACA any time to get the kinks out.

Yes, some people are losing their insurance plans, only because their plan does not meet the standards of the ACA. They are junk plans, plain and simple. Most people are finding they can get better coverage for less money.

So come on, people, take a breath and give the plan a break.

You can bet when people realize that it is a good plan, they will no longer call it Obamacare. It should be called Romneycare, because it is the same plan that works so well now in Massachusetts. They have 98 percent of their people covered by health insurance. Wouldn’t that be great for the country?
