Your Voice: health care online comments

November 3, 2012 

As Election Day approaches on Nov. 6, we want to hear from you on important issues facing our nation. Today, it’s health care.

President Obama touts the many benefits of the Affordable Care Act, from providing coverage to tens of millions of uninsured citizens to protecting those with pre-existing conditions to allowing children to remain on their parents’ plan up to age 26, but some question whether the law is fiscally sound, among other things. Mitt Romney asserts he will repeal Obamacare and replace it with something else — we don’t know what yet — and restructure Medicare.

What do you think? Should the Affordable Care Act be repealed? What should be the future of Medicare? Who would be the better steward over health care — Mr. Obama or Mr. Romney?
