Obamacare is a band-aid. The continual rise in costs will eventually bankrupt the health care system in the U.S., and maybe the U.S. itself if we let it. Pay me now. Pay me later. Das macht nichts.
Like I've said a billion times, trying to treat health care as a for profit, insurable thing is idiotic.
Everyone gets sick, and it's not monetarily profitable to actually take care of sick people.
