We should wait. More than half of the states oppose Obamacare and are presenting legal challenges. If the Supreme Court doesn't overturn it on procedural grounds, Congress will, because it is the will of the people.
I work in healthcare and we (hospitals, other facilities and medical professionals) are just beginning to see all of the regulations spewing forth from Sebelius. If she thinks that Catholic hospitals are going to start providing free birth control to their employees, she doesn't know the firestorm that she is up against.
Another new mandate will cut payment to hospitals if a Medicare patient is readmitted within 30 days for a condition related to their previous hospital stay. Like it is the hospital's fault that people refuse to take their blood pressure medicine or control their diabetes,or have uncontrollable seizures or they continue their drug use? The entire system will collapse from the weight of all the regulations. And if you only have Medicare or Medicaid, good luck. Most private MD's I know are planning to stop seeing those pts; it's not worth hiring extra staff to handle the bureaucracy.

Thanks for the update. The more we learn about this law, the more it looks like an expensive mess that will make health care worse, not better.
