Some believe that the act is unfair because it could disrupt existing health care plans and it could increase costs from the new insurance standards. Yet, there are others who believe that it is fair because they think everyone deserves an equal chance to be healthy. Overall, the Affordable Care Act is beneficial because it provides everyone their necessary health insurance, and the law has shown large amounts of improvement in the nation’s uninsured rate.

The health care reform will greatly affect the medical technology industry in both positive and negative ways. Although the healthcare reform supports greater emphasis being placed on prevention and preserving wellness, which broaden the field for the development of medical technology industry, it also could have negative effects on research, profits, and investments as the medical device excise tax is authorized. The demand for products can be rises as coverage is expanded, but the demand also be reduce due to the price pressure put on the manufacture companies. Since the government has the healthcare field price-controlled, the innovations and access are possibly limited as the result. Some positive effects of the reform on the healthcare industry can be listed.
The impact of these new rules on small companies were also discussed emphasizing how small companies won't be able to shop for better health care deals without breaking some of this new rules or perhaps they won't be able to offer a health care insurance to their workers at all.

The liberals, especially, have pushed hard to stop Obamacare because of the negative issues it has on the American people.

Those in good health take care of those in poor health, and those in poor health actually are rewarded for being unhealthy (Gilbert,
There are many people today who do not like the idea of universal health care and refuse to get it. America is known for having the best medical physicians and people are afraid that it will change drastically if we all share one universal health care plan. Also, if the insurance were to decrease in the universal health plan then taxes should skyrocket and therefore the money that is being saved will end up being used for taxes. According to “Should the Government Provide Free Universal Healthcare for All Americans?” Joe Messerli says that “The government must pay for this somehow” (Messerli). I agree with this because the government will need the money to fund for this universal health care plan.
The reform of health care is a tremendous feat. The changes made to the program affect our country. This also means that any negative aspects of the program also affect us. President Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), also known as “Obamacare”, intends to improve health care and ensure that more Americans possess health insurance. While this seems like a good premise, the new system is flawed and is far from being the perfect healthcare system.

In most developed nations they have universal coverage that covers their citizens and their families. Apparently here in the U.S, healthcare is a controversial problem for our economy and even a bigger problem funding these benefits for our citizens. Now the main question that citizens are asking is "If most developed nations have universal coverage, why doesn't the wealthiest nation which is the U.S have it?" (Ponnuru)This is an issue that no one but the government can let us know what's really going on at the moment, but results are always popping up as misguided quest or funds being lost.
