The law would help out people who are unable to acquire a health care plan, but it would also take money from the people’s taxes. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and many other conservatives are already planning on removing the law to allow people to choose their own health care plans. In the meantime, however, the law will stay in place for the remainder of the president’s time in office.
