Hate to tell you folks this, but the Democrats have won the war even though this battle may be lost for them. Republicans and Democrats alike all now think that one way or another it is the government's responsibility to provide health care or the financial wherewithal for obtaining health care. This would be great if such centralized control worked, but such grand schemes always fail.
Next step will be subsidies handed out for everyone. And finally as the system continues to implode, the "single-payer" system will become what appears to be the only solution. Then, take a number and wait...and wait...and wait.
