I Hope It's Realized ....

... that despite its issues, if we had repealed ACA/Obamacare, there would be even more people who would never be assessed, tested and/or treated for COVID-19, therefore spreading disease even worse, with thousands more dead - 39 million, to be exact, who had no health insurance at all before ACA/Obamacare in 2010.

I hope if nothing else, this public health crisis has helped to reshape political narratives on how we Americans think about what the government should and should not be funding, and that perhaps this our nation's public health should be included under the "general welfare" section of the constitution? 

I don't know about you, but I personally am thanking God, right now, that those who tried to repeal Obamacare entirely - failed.
