There are real problems with the Affordable Care Act. President Obama admits as much. The presidential nominees want to alter, if not repeal, this legislation. More Americans have a negative opinion of the law than positive. But they like the benefits, and as can be seen above, there are tangible benefits. Most importantly, states which expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act saw noticeable improvements in healthcare over states that did not.

Change Obamacare. Repeal Obamacare. But whatever changes are made to healthcare in the United States must provide at least similar tangible benefits.
