In mid-December 2018, a federal judge in Texas ruled that Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, was unconstitutional. The judge noted that Congress’ removal of the mandate for every person to have health care or pay a fine was the principal basis on which the ruling was made.
Many who are against government-sponsored health care welcomed the ruling, believing that it will allow the full repeal of Obamacare to begin. Most in this camp attribute rising medical costs to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
Many of the critics of this ruling believe that the government should provide healthcare for all, and see this decision as a dangerous move toward a society without affordable health care and skyrocketing medical costs. As Congress reforms and works toward the repeal of Obamacare, the “Medicare for all” movement has been a new place for many on this side of the issue to show support.
What do you think? Should the federal government guarantee healthcare for all citizens?
