Obamacare: An Impending Nightmare? By Sara Niles

I originally trusted President Obama not to sign into law something that could potentially damage the people that needed protection the most: the poor and middle class; but now that the Affordable Healthcare Act (Obamacare) has become a reality, unpleasant truths have come to light about mandatory the'Affordable' Health Care Act :

·       Deductables are outrageous
·       The annual plan costs are unaffordable for those who are struggling to survive
·       The potential of criminalizing the poor and middle class because noncompliance
·       The overall appearance is the insurance companies will benefit most

According to the facts so far, Obamacare is a potential nightmare:
With a super high deductible, attached to even the cheapest health care plan and a mandatory requirement that those who were formerly uninsured because of financial limitations, purchase even more ‘unaffordable’ insurance-or face a penalty-this program is set up to become a nightmare instead of a blessing.
The plans are totally unaffordable for many-before there was no insurance for the same group of people-but now there is the danger of a ‘penalty’ because everyone is supposed to buy coverage; even if you can’t afford it.

Obamacare is unreasonable and unrealistic. The question now, is will the poor and lower middle class be fined and criminalized because of mandatory enrollment in Obamacare? The 'Affordable' on the Affordable Healthcare Act, is a misnomer for many.
