ObamaCare vs. The Affordable Care Act

Currently The United States is facing a huge dilemma, and that issue has led to a GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN. We are now entering Day 3 of the government shut down and millions of federal employees are unable to work and earn a paycheck. We are currently at this point because Congress (the House of Representatives and the Senate) have both failed to agree and pass a federal spending plan that they both agree on. Therefore hard working citizens cannot get paid, the civilian instructors at the Academies are unable to teach, the sports at the Academies are no longer being funded which has led to meets and games being cancelled, along with training in the military coming to a halt. Congress will still get paid no matter how long it takes them to make a decision. The main reason Congress has failed to make a decision is because of the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" The House of Representatives (which is majority Republicans oppose the Act) while the Senate (which is mainly democratic approve of the Act).

If you did not know the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is also known as OBAMA CARE. The American people have been able to have an input on the situation that has arisen in our country. Many people have legitimate reasons to oppose the healthcare act, while some people just oppose it because it's Obama's biggest accomplishment while being in the WhiteHouse.

It's really sad that we live in a country where people do not like to think for themselves. Below you will find a video of American citizens being asked which Act do they like better OBAMACARE or the AFFORDABLE CARE ACT. These citizens show no knowledge of knowing that these two acts are the same and have the same policies and guidelines. This just goes to show it's not even the policy that people disagree with it's the fact that the democrats want to see all American citizens have a fighting chance at being able to obtain healthcare, therefore others will oppose it without valid reasoning
