Obamacare opponents will have as much luck changing the ACA for the worse as they will ending Social Security or Medicare.Oh, that's just silly.SS and Medicare were both widely agreed upon and had support of both the majority of the public and politicians of both political parties.ACA, not so much.Nothwithstanding the actual facts of the programs, both SS and Medicare are seen a programs that you "pay into" while you are working and get the benefits of when you retire[*]. People feel that these work like a time-purchase layaway account, that you have "bought" your SS and Medicare benefits over your 30-40 year working lifetime, so ending the program would be the government "stealing" something you've bought and paid for.ACA is nothing like that. Nobody ever had a paycheck that has a witholding deduction for "ACA".------------[*] Yes, I know that the programs don't actually work that way. But people in their hearts believe that they work that way.
