Comment: The Affordable Care Act

(See in situ)

The Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was PASSED by the SENATE & HOUSE, and signed into LAW by the PRESIDENT in 2010.

The Affordable Care Act was challenged in court and declared CONSTITUTIONAL by the SUPREME COURT in 2012.

The Affordable Care Act came into effect in 2013 and is unaffected by the budget shutdown is it has already been FUNDED.

Like it or now, the ACA passed the full rigor and test mechanism set up by the founding fathers for any bill that hopes to become law and succeeded.

The only thing the current shutdown is going to accomplish is cripple the US economy and create uncertainty in the world wide economy similar to 2007/2008.

The GOP already crippled their own party, now they want to cripple the entire country.
