Yeah that'll just be a huge pile of joy
Honesly I don't believe the ACA is the end goal. I think it's just priming the pump for what their real agenda is -- a single payer system. At that point you may as well just call it a "tax" and a "social service" and be done with it, no matter what the labels are. I just hope we don't get to that point, because who is going to make the decisions on what reasonable care is then? How are we going to cover second opinions? How do we not force treatment on people in the name of being "preventative"? There are a lot of questions that lead me to very uncomfortable conclusions. I already hate my oligopoly power company and cable provider -- what makes me think healthcare would be handled any better? It's a slippery slope, and it starts with creating a tax for people who don't shell out for the "acceptable plan" in the first place.
