    We are told that this healthcare bill is better because for one it is free, but it is not free. Like anything it must be payed for in some way or another. In this case it will be payed for through high taxes and even more spending cuts in things such as education and our military. Not only that but there will be a large decrease in patient confidentiality since healthcare will be controlled by the government.
    Everything will be going up such as: Malpractice lawsuits, extremely long wait times, decreases in flexibility, and many more.
    Overall this healthcare system offers very few benefits compared to the damage that it will cause.

    That's a bit of a vague question since "ObamaCare" is usually left to the reader to define. But if the law disappeared tomorrow, most of it would slowly return. Eliminating preventable readmissions, bundling payments for services, building up the primary care workforce, forming systems of accountable care, expanding health home models, and so on--these are all pretty popular ideas that will have to be done eventually.

    But if you're talking specifically about the insurance market reform piece of the law--the first 20% of it or so--the answer is closer to "almost certainly." The centerpiece of those reforms is a competitive marketplace, an idea that's caught on in numerous states even among those who oppose "ObamaCare" (whatever that's supposed to mean). For example.
