Paulette's Sixth Blog Post | Health Care for All: A Matter of Life, Death, and Debt

I feel sick.  My head is pounding and my stomach is unsettled. No, I don’t need to see a doctor.  I feel this way because of the current state of our health care system.  Yesterday, the Republicans unveiled a so-called plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that has been in place for the past 7 years, also known as Obamacare.  It claims that it will lower health care costs (for who?), bring down artificially high drug prices (again, for who?), and give people greater choices in selecting health care that meets their needs.  Let me tell you about my own personal experience with the ACA over the past five years and you will see why I am so disturbed.
