We all know what happened and are only now starting to find out what is in the bill. Like the 2000 small loan companies replaced by the Government that helps small business don't ya think. Come and tell my 22 employees why my taxes are to high for me to keep them working.
People like you need to live in the real world of working for a living.

Come on Butch someone has to pay taxes. How else are we going to keep the huge debt down so the kids will not have to pay so much. Think into the future.

"Until then, the focus had been on Republican predictions that the world would come to an end if Obamacare passed, not on the immediate hell should insurers continue on their merry way." -- This comment is off-base and unfair. No one acted like the world would come to an end, but insurance as we know it will come to an end and that is the intent of the bill. Insurance companies will not be able to last long under the provisions in this bill, and as they begin to die, even some of the staunchest conservatives will be crying for a single-payer system. That is what the bill is designed to do.
Many aspects of this bill turn the insurance companies (which, mind you are owned by investors) into charitable agencies. What company can survive under the pre-existing conditions clause, which requires that insurance companies cover hundreds of thousands (perhaps millions, after all there is no lifetime cap) of medical services for people who wait until they are sick to buy insurance, then just pay a premium of a few thousand dollars (or less)? That's just one aspect of the bill that will soon signal the end of the insurance companies.
Another great one is that people can simply stop paying thousands of dollars a year in insurance premiums, pay a small fine (about 1/10 the cost of insurance), then if they get sick, just buy insurance then, as they can no longer be discriminated against for any preexisting condition. Only the chumps will keep insurance under this plan ... and once people start dropping their insurance (opting to pay the fine instead) and the companies are left paying only for the chronically or catastrophically ill. When the insurance companies end up paying out more then they take in, what do you think will happen? The people who wrote this bill are not stupid. They know exactly what the result will be.
