The greatest benefit of the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare

WHILE MANY AMERICANS LIKE TO SIT AROUND AND CRITICIZE THE ACA, PRESIDENT OBAMA'S CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT, THERE ARE SOME UNINTENDED CONSEQUENCES THAT WILL BENEFIT US ALL.  IN THE MODERN ERA, FAR TOO MANY HAVE LOST TOUCH WITH THAT PERSON TO PERSON INTERACTION, BUT NOW WITH OBAMACARE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO MEET AND MINGLE WITH OTHERS WHILE WE WAIT IN THOSE LONG LINES AT THE DOCTORS OFFICE AND YES, EVEN IN THE EMERGENCY ROOMS ACROSS THE COUNTRY WILL BE GREATLY EXPANDED.  YES, THE NEW DOCTOR'S OFFICES WE WILL BE FORCED INTO WILL BE CROWDED WITH THOSE EAGER TO REAP THE BENEFITS OF OBAMACARE.  BUT ALAS, MILLIONS WILL, AT THE SAME TIME STAY HOME AND AVOID THAT TRIP TO THE DOCTOR BECAUSE OF THE VERY HIGH DEDUCTIBLES.  MAKES ONE WONDER IF THE ACA WAS PLANNED THAT WAY.  BUT THEN IS THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT ONLY INTENDED TO HELP THE VERY POOR IN THE COUNTRY BY PROVIDING SUBSIDIES FOR THEM ON PREMIUMS AND DEDUCTIBLES WHILE AT THE SAME TIME BURYING THE MIDDLE CLASS WITH UNAFFORDABLE PREMIUMS AND DEDUCTIBLES.  AS I SEE IT, THE ACA WILL, IN THE END DO FAR MORE DAMAGE THAN GOOD AND THE LOSERS WILL FAR OUT NUMBER THE WINNERS.  YES, THE ACA WILL BE AFFORDABLE FOR THE VERY POOR AND THE VERY RICH LEAVING THE REST OF US IN THE LURCH.  Thanks to Liberal Logic for the image.
