You have made 2 failures of logic.

1) You assume most people on welfare were black
2) You assume that people on welfare always stay on welfare

In the 1960's 1970's, millions of poor blacks actually made it into the middle class when they got access to good paying jobs in places like Detroit, Ohio, etc.

earned benefits are the property of the employee. There were already mechanisms in the ACA that would have shielded an employer from "paying" for abortion. But an employer has no more right to say how an employee uses a benefit as they do their earned money. This decision will not stand the test of time. It will fall in a like manner that the Bowers v. Hardwick case was revisited and overturned decades later with the majority opinion admitting the SCOTUS had been "wrong".

I call BS on that... The ACA benefits are the same for all policies whether in the exchange or not. They are the minimum ALL policies must have. And about complaining about stuff you'll never use, you don't really understand how insurance works insurance do you?

As for me, I've signed up, paid for it and am receiving benefits from it. I had gone for 2 years without and could not get insurance back because of pre-existing conditions. Now, thanks to the ACA, I have it and I have services and deductibles comparable to what I had before plus the new ACA benefits. And the policy cost is about $120 LESS per month than what I was paying before . And there is the exchange subsidy on top of that.

The cost of insurance before "ObamaCare" was also "Insane" so quit blaming the high prices on the ACA. If anything, since the ACA was passed, the annual rate of insurance increases has slowed dramatically. The very fact that you can get a private health plan with no restrictions for pre-existing conditions - which most of us have in some form -- should be a cause for appreciation.

The long term effect will likely be that people in small business and small 1 person companies will indeed carry private individual plans. I like the prospect of not being tied to a job because of health insurance. I also like the prospect of not having to work 2 or more jobs just to be able to get it.
