Insurance
Health insurance to be precise.

It means, fines for not paying outrageous healthcare premium costs for very little coverage. If you go 12 months without some kind of coverage you will be fined and drivers license will be revoked. If you don't pay fine they will take it out our taxes and if you don't file taxes or pay the fine or not have insurance for 24 months the government will put a lien on your house and force you to sell it to pay fine. Nice hu? Obama really wants you to have health insurance but is going about it the wrong way.

It actually entails a lot. No lifetime limits, no turning down people due to pre-existing conditions, allowing parents to keep their children on their policies until they're 26. Not charging women extra, no charging older folks way more than younger ones.
In states that implemented it, expanded Medicaid for the working poor. Makes many preventative services no co-pay. Sets up competitive marketplaces for insurance shopping which lowers prices.
For it to work, all have to be insured. Including young, healthies. There is a small fine first year and the fine grows after that.
If you don't have insurance or pay the fine then your tax refund can be kept but that's about as far as they've gone.

So far, that's as far as it's gone. I agree it has good SMALL pieces but it needs major work still. You can't fine people more of what they don't have to begin with, then have the only money they get every year "taxes" garnished because they can't afford insurance. Your making and pushing the snowball down hill for those people. Eventually they're gunna be putting people in jail for all kinds of stuff they can create... Driving no license, no license no car insurance. Fine, fine, fine then they can't pay fine or tax evading to not pay and the list goes on. As if our jail system isn't clogged up enough! It's another chunk of our freedom taken, but if you don't care about that then Obama is your man with the plan

Those SMALL pieces are lifesavers for many. There are dang few who cannot afford what's coming except in states where the GOP governors denied the Medicaid expansion. They can thank their guvs for that.
Is the ACA perfect? Nope. But just think, if Hilary had not been attacked for her single payer ideas, we wouldn't now be stuck with the GOP idea of individual mandate

I pen highlights only! It's over 15,000 pages and growing.
1. Taxes or fines to ensure the uninsured become insured. Each individual must purchase or they get taxed.
2. Businesses mandated to cover tier employees, or pay a tax of $2,000 per employee.
3. Each state is to expand Medicaid for indigent, and 90+% of the cost of expansion will be paid by the Federal government. 37 states have decided not to.
4. Each state is to institute an "exchange," where all willing providers in the state are matched up with willing purchasers. If they don't set one up, the Feds will.
5. A reduction in payments to Medicare providers for 10 years to afford to pay for a portion of it; however, CBO estimates say it will add almost 3 trillion to the debt by the end of 2013.
6. The IRS is to enforce compliance. The HHS is able to make any necessary regulations, without further Congressional oversight or direction.
