Here's just one part of the Affordable Care Act does - it REGULATES BIG INSURANCE and requires them to spend 80¢ of every $1.00 of your health insurance premium on healthcare. Not overhead, not CEO compensation, not stockholder payout, not office expenses, not advertising... but YOUR HEALTHCARE.
What a novel idea, eh? That health insurance premiums should be used to pay for healthcare.
Reckon where that crazy idea came from?
