ObamaCare (the BIG issue BY FAR) is NOT at all about controlling H/C costs, which is what Middle America REALLY seeks. That SHOULD start with tort reform, but legal leeches own the 'Crats.
ObamaCare is REALLY all about the guvment taking over 1/6 of the economy, which will be IRREVERSIBLE. It will be whole new bureaucracies and Leftist hegemony that the guvment will use to suck us DRY.
By 1990, 25 years into Medicare, it had already cost 9 TIMES/900% what we had been told to expect-- adjusted for inflation.
Guvment CANNOT deliver services; it exists to perpetuate ITSELF. H/C costs will SOAR.
