    Obama is trying to transform it into nationalized health care.

    . It is about setting up a system which encourages the end of employer based benefits. Then people start getting accustomed to huge subsidies from the government to pay for their healthcare. The cost structure of the ACA collapses with the addition of those previously on employer based healthcare. Then we will be offered the option of paying much greater portions of the insurance premium or going on single payer. Not much of a choice. Once on single payer people will figure out what rationing means.

    -"Let insurers sell across states lines!"

    -"All right, we'll let health insurance companies sell plans nationwide."

    -"Wow, socialism!"

    Do we have to have the most ridiculously expensive scam of a system to keep the dupes happy?

    Where will the $100 billion a year in :
    Federal taxes/State/Local taxes/social security/Medicare/workman's compensation/ unemployment insurance AND local property taxes
    come from?
    Has any recognized that the 1,300 health insurance companies that will go out of business because of this universal program ?
    Who will pay for the 400,000 people that work or health insurance companies that will be unemployed?

    Of course these are EVIL profit making companies and we need them destroyed right?

    Again.. WHERE WILL the $100 billion a year they pay in taxes come from??? Where will the 400,000 employees go??

    Classic strawman fallacy.

    Please show us where this scenario took place anywhere.

    And can you show us in the ACA legislation where the health insurance industry has been deregulated to the point EVERY health insurance company can sell insurance nationwide?

    Do you even comprehend what free market competition is? I'll give you a hint: It isn't restricting all but two companies from competing nationwide. The government picking two companies IS socialism.
