Its Easy and Immoral for the Anti-ACA Crowd to Urge the Uninsured to Refuse Obamacare...

Christopher Flavell, a member of Bloomburg's Editorial Board has a great post up today at Bloomberg.com that discusses the popular conservative tactic of encouraging young, uninsured people to skip the sign up periods for health insurance via their State exchanges, scheduled to open in October.

This campaign would be amusing, if it didn't stand a significant chance of actually persuading people to sacrifice their own health and finances for somebody else's political cause.

  1. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) — often referred to as "health care reform" or "Obamacare" — brought in robust health insurance reforms which started to roll out in 2010. By 2014, almost all of the law's rules and regulations should be in place. The ACA will affect several parties - the uninsured, Medicaid clients, employers, health insurers, seniors as well as the currently insured.
