I am personally for the PPACA or "Obamacare" I feel many people don't fully understand it. The mandate does not force everyone to have health care. If you don't have health care and you can afford it, you will have to pay a small fee. But what people don't get is that if you can't afford health care, they will not force the fee upon you. Also, this mandate is needed because in 2014 there will be no more "pre-existing conditions". At all. People will be charged the same regardless of their medical history. So the mandate is necessary if you're doing away with "pre-existing conditions" because otherwise no one would get insurance until they needed to use it, which defeats the purpose of insurance.
And also, we should def like it somewhat because it allows the Food and Drug Administration to approve more generic drugs which causes more competition in the market to drive down prices of drugs.
I feel there are hundreds of uninformed people out there that just hate the bill because it was introduced by Obama.
