I have always predicted that at least 100 million will be uninsured once obamacare kicks in. Employers will drop health insurance for financial and moral (abortion coverage) reasons. Dropped employees will not seek their own coverage due to cost and no meaningful penalty for lack of coverage. Totally logical behavior at work.
No death panels--just delay panels which equqals a death sentence for the critically ill. The rich will get the care and the poor will suffer a lot more.
If I was rich, I'd set up a state of the art medical facility in the Caribbean, attract the best doctors with huge salaries and charge a fortune to rich patients. Plenty from around the world to be successful.
