More has changed than you notice, or mention. Costs are out of control as it is, and are going to increase despite a nearly two trillion (current estimate) taxpayer burden.
The number one impediment to acceptable, even desirable levels of coverage for everyone is out of control costs. Despite the continued insistence that costs can or will decrease under ObamaCare, nothing could be further from the truth. The number two impediment is this mind-set that everyone should be individually required to purchase the exact same policy, filled with all manner of unnecessary and unwanted coverage.
Competition is gone. Choice is gone. Torte reform is absent still. The only thing Obama Care would do to attempt cost control is rationing of services. I'm not the least bit surprised that folks would rather ignore how flawed Obama Care is.
Back to this state. I've seen nothing that would lead me to believe that we'd end up with anything but a mini version of Obama Care, with exactly the same level of incompetence and financially unsustainable gimmicks. It's painfully obvious to me.
Perhaps if they wrap it all in a pretty bow, it will look even more like a gift...
