AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Healthcare economists weigh in positively for the ACA, current Medicare & Medicaid free of block grants & work requirements. Corporations should not have a tax break when providing healthcare. It’s a cost of business. Drug pricing is too high & they’re not investing in R & D ! Go back to 1989 rule no public advertising. It’s a start.

Kaiser Family Foundation has already said this is an unnecessary hardship. Many on Medicaid are working or require counseling & psychiatric treatment. Why pile on abuse? Only reason, denial of coverage. Inhumane!?
