I am not trying to tackle all of Healthcare. I am only repeating what the CBO and other analysis have said regarding its current state. I am confused on your stance that it is "more expensive". More expensive than what? If doing nothing would increase costs more, and doing this increases costs less, that is a decrease from the status quo even if overall costs go up.
Considering its name being affordable was the exact opposite of what it was, I think thats an understatement.
I'm not saying this is the holy grail. And I'm sure there were plenty of partisan talking points tryign to emphasize how bad Obamacare was. It was Obama's signature issue, I think he owns the rising premiums and struggling health insurance industry that this new bill is attempting to get under control.
My point is that the current status quo (Obamacare) is not working. This is a step in the right direction. If you had a vote on this bill, would not do it because it doesn't decrease costs enough (as some conservatives are saying, but without offering an alternative) or because it isn't offering the same coverage as Obamacare (as liberals are saying)?
Considering the left doesn't like it and the far right doesn't like it, I take that as meaning it's a center-right policy. I will add that I don't think repeal and doing nothing is an option.
