The Supreme Court approved Obamacare because they considered the law and the requiriment to PURCHASE insurance to be a 'tax'.

Unfortunately the 'tax' doesn't go to the government, it goes to and enriches PRIVATE (for profit) INSURANCE COMPANIES.

That would be like taking the 'tax' on cigarettes and GIVING it to the Tobacco Industry.

Healthcare should be affordable, no doubt. However, Obamacare isn't healthcare, it is only HEALTH INSURANCE which requires a monthly payment PLUS the co-pays and deductibles when someone actually needs healthcare. Something that for some, will NOT be 'affordable'.
