    As a Brit, I'm wondering who's right; Trump for saying Obamacare is bad, or his opponents for saying it's good?

    As a victim of obozocare I will assure you it is a complete disaster and it was designed to be. Once the leftist sociopaths have destroyed the last of the free market hospitals in the US they will demand the "universal" system that has people in the UK waiting for months for simple procedures.

    Those who want taxpayers to pay for their healthcare hate it, if you don't have health ins you pay a fine.

    Its a good thing, the first time insurance companies could not charge more for pre-existing conditions, or cap ins.

    It's not perfect, largely due to Republicans doing their damndest to sabotage it at every turn, but it's a good thing all-in-all.

    It started off as a bad thing. Now it's a terrible thing, headed towards becoming a super mega disaster thing. But hey everyone is "covered" YAY! As long as you have $5000 dollars laying around to pay your deductible.

    Put it this way does the average Brit have 3,895 pounds ($5,000 US) sitting around every year to pay the deductible?

    Neither does the average American, it's not health care.

    Our Brit National Health Service is completely free (well we pay for it painlessly with our taxes but you see what I mean), so as a matter of interest why doesn't America adopt the same system?
    Hey, if you're an American in need of medical treatment, hop on a plane and fly to Britain to get treated free, sure you'll have to pay the air fare but it might work out cheaper in the long run than paying big bucks to have it done in the US.
    In fact there are a steady stream of foreign "health tourists" who come here for just such a purpose..:)
