he did not need to take on the whole system at once. he should have started with competition across state line and sat back and weighed the results of slight changes.

At least he's trying to do something. If anyone wants to gripe about his efforts, at least supply an alternative plan - unless you're just hating for the sake of hating.

Once the government starts mandating that it's citizens buy a product/service, where will it end? Will we all be required to buy a Government Motors car next?

Does that mean I need to pay for products that I want? What's the problem? do you expect health care for free?

One should’t blame the ACA and the current Congress for it. Blame MIPPA and the prior one. Or thank them. They’re saving taxpayers a lot of money,$47.5 billion over 2009-2018 according to Peter Orszag. I wish we could save a lot of money and cut a lot of waste out of the health system without inconveniencing people, but we can’t. Sorry.
This is a private fee for service (PFFS) plan. Such plans are paid like other Medicare Advantage (MA) plans but are not required to establish networks, manage care, report on quality, offer drugs, among many other exemptions. They are essentially enhanced fee-for-service (original Medicare) products or subsidized Medigap. For all this, they are paid well above FFS cost. They have been the fastest growing type of plan, responsible for most of the recent increase in cost of the MA program.

Pay your way or get out of the way.
This is an example of shrinking government, yet conservatives don't like it.
They say their for small government until it hits their pocket book. To bad, so sad.
