[VIDEO]: Watch how Bill Clinton criticizes an ally’s Obamacare – but Trump’s strategy, not the solution either; according to an observer.

It’s supposed to be patient protection and affordable care act

“You’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have healthcare and then the people are out there busting it sometimes 60 hours a week wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half,” he said in Flint, Mich. “It’s the craziest thing in the world.”

Still, Clinton said repealing the Affordable Care Act—as Republican nominee Donald Trump wants to do—isn’t the answer.

Did not Work for All

The system works for people who are eligible for Medicaid or for other insurance subsidies, Clinton added, but not for middle-class families who make too much to get government assistance but still have trouble affording high premiums.“

Clarification from Hillary Clinton’s Camp

Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said the former president was referring to the way the health care system used to work.

Just an Observation – showing that there’s a room for further improve

“Well, what he was referring to was the health care system [touches earpiece] both as it used to be and then sometimes what happens in some of these markets, you know, where basically the marketplace skews the cost,” Mook said. “This is exactly why we’ve got to do something about premium increases”.

Facing the Consequences of Having No Health Insurance

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
If you are a U.S. citizen of legal age, you will be fined a penalty for not having a health insurance. Consider this fact. If you end up accumulating substantial medical bills to the government simply because you are not covered by any insurance, the funds from other tax payers will be used to pay off your damages.

In third world countries when most people do not have health insurance or no access to social security memberships due to unemployment, they can die from simple medical cases like giving birth or diarrhea – because public hospitals will not admit those who can’t afford even just for the medications required due to overcrowding!

Whereas in first world countries, people pay almost 50% of their income for healthcare but when they are sick from whatever diseases, they can be admitted to dignified hospitals and get proper care without worrying for medical bills. So, it is fair what the Americans are doing – to let those who can afford pay for their own insurance and penalize those who do not follow unless you are under government subsidy.

Despite paying the penalty for not having a health insurance, you are still uninsured so when availing hospital care, you still have to pay your own bills and for those who are dependent on your income. So, no matter where you live – it is wise to pay for your own health insurance according to what you can afford or suffer the consequences of not having one!
