All this law did was benefit the insurance and pharmaceutical companies and entrench their power by trying to force Americans into buying their products. Bravo democratic corporatists. Because the old system was so much better? If I recall our entire economy was about to collapse because Americans are getting older and needed more healthcare, and insurance companies could not cope with paying for everyone's treatments so they transferred the costs to the insured until medical bills were taking up the vast majority of people's incomes. So then what other solution do we have other than mandated health insurance to get more cash into the pool? Healthcare reform was supported by Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Nixon, and Clinton....it shouldn't even be called "Obamacare" so much as it is Rooseveltcare or Nixoncare.
