You can't save a lot of money unless you don't spend it. How else could Obamacare cover millions of new people or less money? They took it from Medicare. If you read Dr Berwick's musings on the matter, you will understand that they felt healthcare for older people was not cost effective. In fact, te ACA was funded by REDUCING Medicare expenditures over the next ten years. With a growing population of seniors who will certainly become ill at some point, how will reduced funding buy the care that will be needed? It won't. You've been hoodwinked.
