It’s time to take care of our citizens

When are people in this nation wake up and realize that the Affordable Care Act is not as bad as some individuals are saying it is? So they are adamantly against giving free health care to people who need it in this nation, yet don’t bat an eye or complain that people in jails and prisons throughout this country get it for free. Am I missing something? It is time to take care of our own citizens, and I am just glad that we finally have a president who finally tackled the health care issue. No matter what Republicans say, it is indeed broken and maybe this will be the first step in changing that.
