Bailey acknowledged that along with these benefits come significant funding challenges. "I think that is may be the next big part of health care," he said. "We are probably never going to reverse the costs, but how can we control it? The ACA doesn't really address that but that’s the next big issue on the horizon."
American Farm Bureau President Bob Stallman told Baum his federation is "concerned" about potential increases in costs for businesses and individuals, and fears the law would "impose a new financial burden on our members." Stallman called for a market-based reform, encouraging Congress and President Obama to address remaining concerns. The more liberal National Farmers Union supported the findings of the Supreme Court, and praised the "significant, necessary reforms that help all Americans … afford insurance and the preventive care they need," Baum reports.
