Affordable Healh Care for All

Summary

Affordable Health Care for all is subject that I am very concerned about . When the ACA became law during the Obama Administration Health Care Cost for Individual Plans for millions of Americans became unaffordable. The Govenment forces every American to purchase Health Care at these higher rates or face fines. This was unconstitional and left millions in a dillemna pay the in some case 350% increase in Health Insurance Premiums or go without Health Insurance to be able to afford rent or mortgage payments and pay the fine. Many chose to drop their health insurance due to the steep increases casused by Obama Care and the ACA which should have been call the Unaffordable Care Act for Blue Collar Americans. 

If Elected I wil bring the ACA to light and will support new laws to make affordable health care a reality again to all americans and citizens, By Giving Free Subsidized Health Care at the expense of the middle class was outrageous and must be reversed I am all in favor of helping those in need, povery, etc with Health Car but not forcing citizens to pay for this out through inflated Health Medical  Insurance Premiums
