Via Jack Crow an excellent summation of Obamacare by Jonathan Versen
You may object that if you vote for the democrats this will prevent these things from happening. But just as Obama insisted on a deficit commission, remember that ACA was designed from the start to be vulnerable to such funding cuts and loosening of regulation. A universal plan, some kind of single payer or national health plan wouldn't have created a wary fence between the haves and have nots, and would eventually become as popular as medicare or social security. ACA wasn't random; it serves both the democrats and the republicans(and the insurance companies). So the dems can frighten you about coverage being on the chopping block, while republicans frighten you about spiralling out of control costs. Win-win.
