skywalker, I think you live in a dream world. To start at the bottom, who has the better lawyers, you or the insurance company? I think health insurance is so complex that you would not know what you were buying (hence, gov't regulation of insurance policies). If insurance companies organized health insurance like home owners, etc., then what you say would be fine; but the companies have never done that. (I don't know why; that would be interesting.) Auto insurance is an interesting parallel: in almost all states, you have to have it in order to drive *your* car, even if you think you're a great driver who'll never get into an accident. I kinda think the Affordable Care Act is built on the same principle.
Now that Obama has been re-elected and Democrats still control the Senate, Republicans no longer have the chance to repeal Obamacare.

But all is not lost. There's still an opportunity for America to stop this disaster by choking the life out of the federal monstrosity. Obama's signature legislative achievement is likely headed back to the Supreme Court.

Just last week, the high court ordered a lower federal court to take up a lawsuit by the patriots at Liberty University, who claim Congress violated the college's religious freedoms by forcing it to provide federally mandated insurance and requiring payment for abortion-related services....
