To the Editor:

With all the problems of the Affordable Care Act, maybe somebody can answer a few questions.

Let’s start with definition of affordable – inexpensive and or reasonably priced. Now how can we have this when we have the most expensive health business in the world?

Hopefully people understand that this is a business, and the ratings for health outcomes are not matching. Shouldn’t they be?

How does advertising lower costs? Why do health systems complain about collecting money, yet argue who is going to spent $250 million for a new hospital?

Who ends up paying for the ACA?
