Probably.
I just hope the get rid of Medicare and Medicaid and roll everything into one if thats's the case. Don't need another program that WILL balloon into $30+ Trillion of unfunded liabilities.

Uh...well yeah. That's why Ocare was designed to fail so they could have a pretext for when it fails that allows them to take it to their ultimate goal.

They will make it single payer and doctors will be poor, thus making you have to tip your doctor if you want to get any sort of good service from them. And the nurses. And the receptionist to check you in to see the doctor or nurse.

Sure, but what are we talking, 15%, 20%, because at 25% I'm kicking the bucket.

Yes, then there will be private medical insurance for those that want treatment. There will be another class of physicians who will work outside the system in a concierge practice or some group practice for cash or some other deal other than the government scrip.
This is what has happened in every country where there is socialised medicine.
You wont be able to get into see a doctor as the line ahead of you will be filled with all the government sponsored baby incubators and people with snottty noses clogging the waiting room ahead of you....so you will buy a private medical insurance policy or pay a stipend for access to doctors who work on the side.

Yes, it is. Obamacare was never intended to work. The party of Change pushed for it only so they can step in and say "Well, we will fix it!"...
This is exactly what's going to happened:

The problem with this is - during the process lots of practices will close and this will create more unemployed, more reason the government to demand more "revenue" so they can take care of them....
Government taking over the healthcare is essential element of the Socialism, they already got Fanny and Freddy, they have a major industrial business, as GM, now they need to kill in large the private medical practice and to continue to grow and kill the small business, so they can deliver more people to the close to the government corporations, this is what's going to happen, it cannot be any different than in any other of the European countries that went this way... Government control over economy and health care means, they control the population, they don't need anymore your votes, elections will be made-up, it'll be one Party in power, kiss Good Bye your Constitution and the freedoms that come with it...

No that's the first step when Obama declares himself King & God.

It doesn't take much to see that Obamacare is doomed to failure from the start. You'll see that Obamacare will need bailouts, tax increases, penalty increases. This is without including the illegal immigrants in the mix but there are already groups and politicians calling for legislation to include illegal immigrants into Obamacare.

That's what the U.S. has come to. Forced to buy health insurance or pay a penalty. Don't pay the penalty and the government will seize your home, your car, and garnish your wages. And to think we went to war over a measly tea tax.
