“The law hasn’t done anything positive….”
Horseshit. My 24 yo old son is on my insurance with the bill, without it he’d be uninsured and missing care. That may not be “anything positive” to you but it means a lot to my family. The several major provisions that are already in effect (parental coverage till age 26, ending of lifetime caps, ending of preexisting conditions for kids, etc) have brought some relief to *millions* of Americans already. That’s something positive it’s already done and that is a fact.
You can legitimately question the political judgement behind it. And you can legitimately wish it had gone further or that it was done very differently. But you do NOT have the right to lie about it and claim it hasn’t done a lot of good. Leave that to the rightwingnuts – they’re better at lying anyway.
