3. The people who use ER's and don't pay...won't pay under Obamacare either. So if you think you are solving a problem, the simple fact is, you are not. You are making it worse.
4. Obamacare also encourages over-utilization of healthcare services...further adding to costs, and compounding the problem.
If expensive healthcare and un/underemployment is the problem, Obamacare is not the solution.
Socialist Democrats know this, and continue to support the law, no matter the consequences...which is insane.
If you really believe this (bolded), then you clearly have no idea how the ACA functions.
And how does Romney's plan solve the problem of uninsured people utilizing ERs and not paying?
