The Claim.
30 million Americans were in dire need of Health Insurance.  It is a crisis that requires re-tooling of the entire healthcare system.   We must act now!  
And by the way, an efficient, government-run system will save families $2500/yr.…

The Stated Result.
Over 30 million uninsured and under-insured Americans would clamor to sign up for low cost insurance w/o pre-existing conditions or limits.  The system will pay for itself and even save taxpayers money.  Projected costs were under $1 trillion with savings eventually.

The Expected Result.
Hopefully somewhere near 30 million Americans will be persuaded to pay for something they didn’t really want.   A few million will pay the penalty.    There will be no savings but maybe it won’t cost too much more.

The Actual Result.
Only 2.4 million have signed up and most of those are because they are getting, or expect to get, the cost of their Obamacare Insurance subsidized.   Billions were taken out of Medicare to offset costs.   Obamacare was determined to be merely an additional tax by the SCOTUS.   There is no upper limit to costs.

The Hoped-For Result.
Government control of all Health Care.  Hospital policies, staff wages, treatment, patient selection, etc will be mandated by Wash D.C.  “Personal” health records will be co-owned by government.  The IRS will ensure medical payments and collections.  Severe limits placed on personal health choices.

Likely Evolution of Result.
Your health record will be entered into a government health matrix and the amount and/or vigor of your health care will be determined by government criteria.   Although these criteria will shift slightly with the political winds, expect factors like:  age, race, sex, income, occupation, weight, lifestyle, etc., to play a major role in deciding who will be treated and who will be given pain medication and/or end-of-life counselling.
Food choices, sports, hobbies, vehicle use, travel, reproduction, etc, will be monitored and regulated due to health concerns and costs.

Obamacare: Obama cares about you (joke)

Honestly, I am getting tired of hearing Obamacare. This healthcare law will bring nothing but disaster to many people, especially on the youth. What concerns me the most is that I plan on going to college soon. Not only do I have to worry about student loans, but if I lose my current health care plan, then I'll either have to pay the penalty or be forced to sign up for Obamacare. Plus, I read on of the Gallup articles that shows that the majority of people disagree with the law, and that it isn't popular with the youth as well. This will bring so much burden to many young Americans, such as myself, and other families as well.

Obama is counting on you youngsters to be stupid enough to pay the Obamacare tax/insurance or the penalty.  (btw penalty is cheaper - for now)   However paying for ins. does not guarantee medical treatment.  You will prob have to go to private dr.s since all the med facilities will be clogged w/ illegas, unemployed and seniors.
