I believe a guy in 2018 (five years away)...will basically say that fifty percent of ObamaCare has been strongly modified or dumped. The number of people without health insurance? Probably just as many or more....as it was in 2008. Social scientist will try to explain how it never worked...talking mostly over high expectations and lousy understandings of the actual problems.
As for legacy stuff? There won’t be much to brag about. By 2024, some idiot will stand up and talk about a defining way of providing health care...giving it some name of “Compassion 2025”...and we go through the whole experience again. The result will be a sixteen thousand page bill which is passed through the Senate in a matter of seven days.
When Obamacare comes into full effect, for those over 70 it will not matter whether or not they have insurance.
Certainly they will be paying for it,but if they get sick it will be denied them through the rationing panel.
Oh!!! You might get a little help for a cold , if you can find a Nurse practitioner, but if you get something that is lingering and costly to provide you may as well bend over and kiss your ass goodbye.
