Can anyone explain the Affordable Care Act to me?


I was honestly going to make a Hub about this, asking this very question, and I had written 800 something words on the subject. Ok actually it's more like a mild rant, but I think this would be better as a Hubpages question rather than a Hub that no one will read. Or would it be worthy of a Hub? I guess I'm asking two questions here; first please help me understand this nonsense (or why it's not), and secondly would it be worth writing a Hub about?

    If ACA was so affordable, why did the congress in 2013 raise the medical deduction threshold from 7.5% to 10%?

    They should have reduced it to 5% or 2%.

    From what I see, people insured under the ACA have catastrophic coverage meaning high deductibles

    Besides pre existing conditions, which could have been satisfied by a single bill, and been applied immediately, what else does ACA offer?

    I was going to make this case, good job. There is mandatory car insurance across the states for a reason; and healthcare should be required for the same reasons. Its too bad government has to tweek insurance regulations to serve citizens.
