That suggest you're not living in the United States and know little of the everyday reality there. Several employers are already planning to cut employee hours to less than 30 hours a week in order to avoid Obamacare. Others will drop company coverage altogether because it's cheaper to pay the fine. Some simply just wont hire as many workers. Healthy 21 year-olds will have to pay nearly $300/month for health coverage under Obama, I doubt most will pay it. The most effective health care plans in the U.S. come from private large companies that pool employee contributions for a common fund. Obama intends to dismantle these in order to force their contribution to a more expensive national system.
Larger companies are exempt for the time being, so now Obamacare amounts to a middle class gouge in order to subsidize a bloated and money sucking health care system. MRIs have increased 5-fold since 2005 because of the amount hospitals can charge for them. Maybe now they'll be able to double that number. If America wants to attempt national health insurance they should model it more closely to Taiwan's (minus the doctor visits for the common cold). 25% of the health care costs in the U.S. is paper work, a sizable chunk from malpractice insurance, and who knows how much from needless treatment and keeping the terminally ill alive for an extra couple of months regardless of quality of life. Much needs to be done to change health care in the states but Obamacare is going to be a money pit that will cause more problems than it's trying to solve.
I don't really care if Republicans stop it or not (and I doubt they will), because it's going to reveal itself as a disaster sooner than later.
U.S. postal service= broke
Social Security = broke
Medicare = broke
U.S. government = broke
Hey, I know...lets let the government manage everyone's health care.
