For those of you who are still confused when hearing the debate over the Affordable Care Act, it's all about vocabulary. If you define the vocabulary, it is easier to understand the arguments on either side.
"Massive government overreach" means it wasn't our idea and we're going to oppose anything we don't get the credit for enacting.
"Market-based reforms" means reform will occur as the marketers discover new ways to make money for our health care misfortunes.
"Commerce clause argument ... found to be legitimate" means North Dakota tax dollars were not wasted on a frivolous lawsuit.
"Freedom to make their own decisions about health care coverage" refers only to those who can afford it. Those of you who do not have employer coverage, are not yet Medicare age, or cannot afford coverage, this reference to "freedom" does not apply to you.
I hope that helps resolve the misunderstandings that have been dispersed regarding the Affordable Care Act. It is always easier to support an act of Congress once you comprehend the entire issue.
