Working people adjust to Obamacare

It looks like Obamacare is here to stay, at least for awhile. The sign up deadline just passed and millions of people signed up. It is unknown if these people already had insurance before signing up for new plans. Many employers have put their workforces on part-time status so they won't have to pay for insurance. So their personnel have had to buy their own insurance or pay a fine. And many people struggled to use the computer to sign up for healthcare.

"I think the Affordable Care Act will ultimately be good for the American people," said Roger Stimson.

"The problem with Obamacare is that it encouraged too many employers to put more people on part-time status. And this is not good for anyone. Health insurance is good, but employers should not be forced to buy it," said Marianne O'Hara.

"I hope more people get quality health insurance through Obamacare. I know a lot of people have struggled without health insurance," said Nicole Gonzalez.
