You wouldn't know that by reading posts on Facebook. I've never seen so many people complain about legislation that really isn't all that earth-shattering. It is a step in the right direction in terms of giving everyone access to insurance, which is currently not the case. Really, who can argue about getting rid of pre-existing conditions? What I don't understand is whether there is anyone out there that is truly happy with their current coverage. I don't think I've met anyone who is that pleased with the way things are. So why all the complaining today when the reform is just going to patch up some huge problems with the current system?
I know some people are concerned about the costs of covering everyone. However, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) found that this bill will actually save money. CBO is a non-partisan group, so their findings are truly not biased.
Can someone explain to me what the problem is exactly?
