On July 11, 2012 the US House of Representatives voted to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. As expected representatives voted along party lines which resulted in a 244-185 in favor of abolishing healthcare reform. However, regardless of what happens next, there are many changes that cannot be undone. I don’t believe that we will be able to afford healthcare reform as is and I don’t really care about the politics of the issue yet I agree with Rep Phil Gingrey in his statement: “Healthcare costs in this country are too high, but this 2,000-page, 1 trillion law is not the solution. Patients should have more control of their insurance decisions, and reform should be driven on the state level,” he said. I don’t know what the future of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will be but I do know that in order to survive we need to change and adapt to the needs of our population.
