The ACA: Where do the presidential candidates stand?
With healthcare on the docket as a key domestic policy issue this election; here is where the front-runners stand on the ACA.
The M.D. of the presidential hopefuls, Ben Carson advocates repealing the ACA and replacing it with health empowerment accounts (HEAs) to be given to all U.S. citizens along with their social security numbers. Citizens would contribute to their HEAs tax-free and would be able to use the accounts to pay for medical expenses for themselves and their family members. The money is theirs, whether they change jobs or move across state lines, and would be paired with high-deductible health plans for catastrophic medical costs.
