To embrace the UCA (aka ACA) that nobody really understands, especially those who passed this assault on America is whistling pass the grave yard! Some folks are prostrating themselves blindly before the alter of Lies and Obfuscation concerning this scheme that will consume one sixth of our economy.

Most Americans have no idea of how government run health care works in the Real world. One thing is for sure, you don't get Quality, Efficiency and Cost containment in gubment running anything! Lets take a look at those countries where their Health care is on the verge of collapse because of the uncontrollable deficiencies associated with boated gubment.....

Health care presently consumes just under one-fifth of the American economy, and is climbing quickly. Do you mean that UCA will *add* another 1/6 to the current 1/5, to total 3/8 of the economy? Ridiculous.

As it continues to consume an ever larger share of the national economy, Americans are increasingly unable to afford decent healthcare. Comfortable and aloof in your own particular circumstances, you may cooly divorce yourself from the reality in which your fellow countrymen live. You may feel it is your constitutionally-protected right to be free of taxation toward helping others, but I don't believe that any country can maintain strength when the civic responsibilities of its citizens are limited to just what each one wants/needs, without regard to those others with whom - whether they realize it or not - they interdependently exist.

If UCA brings health care down from a bloated one-fifth of the economy to a more reasonable one-sixth share, its a good start toward getting the costs of such basic needs back to where they belong: realistically within the range of affordability by the vast majority of Americans.
