...In regards to health care, do I believe it's a right to be given free healthcare for everyone? No, I don't. Does someone have the right to have access to health care, yes. No discrimination, yet the "affordable" part starts getting iffy as to what's considered "affordable" to whom. Prior to the AHCA, we paid $750 / month for a family of four where we only went to the doctor once, maybe twice a year; we've done our best to maintain a healthy lifestyle (eating, exercise, etc). Afterwards, it shot up to $1400 / month for the same coverage. Yeah, we "liked our plan" and "we could keep our plan" but forget about buying food anymore. It was basically a tax hike that we had no control over and got penalized when we couldn't afford it. We basically had to reduce our plan to the absolute lowest coverage we could possibly get which was basically no coverage at all but still had to pay $850 / month.
I'll take you at your word on that. I know those kinds of situations did happen to some people.

You'd be hard pressed to find anyone who thinks the ACA is perfect. It needs fixing. Unfortunately one of the two parties has no interest in fixing it, only removing it. In a two party system that means it is extremely difficult to fix it. From everything I've seen, most Americans (even most Republicans) don't want to see it go away they just want it to work better.

And while you and others have had less than perfect outcomes, millions of others who previously had no coverage, got coverage they could afford. Under your prior setup you had no protection from pre-existing conditions, now you do. The only way to get anything close to perfect healthcare is to be rich. It has always been that way and it will be for a long to yet to come. I know I'm personally very happy to have access to the coverage it provides me, which I would not have been able to afford without it (at least not without having a full-time job).
