  •  Point 2 (12+ / 0-)

    This one is just ridiculous.  Access to care doesn't mean people will use the emergency room more.  When their child has a cold they will now be able to take them to the doctor instead of waiting until it turns into something worse, which is when they end up in the emergency room.  If you have insurance you aren't even covered for an emergency room visit over a stuffy nose and that wouldn't change with the ACA.  If you have insurance you have options and when you are sick you can get non-emergency treatment through an office visit and perhaps even get a diagnosis of something more severe that can now be caught before you are stuck in the emergency room.  

    Sorry, but point 2 is one of the stupidest arguments I've ever heard.
