Thanks for taking the challenge!

First off, under Obamacare millions of Americans that are perfectly content with their more than adequate and well priced healthcare plans will lose their current coverage. Obama lied for years and said that Americans could keep their plans if they chose; this is not true. Many Americans will have to purchase plans that they do not want or need.

Next, the government will have substansial say in what sort of medicine and treatment you get. Obama said "They"re going to have to give up paying for things that don"t make them healthier. " If there"s a blue pill and a red pill, and the blue pill is half the price of the red pill and works just as well, why not pay half for the thing that"s going to make you well." This is the government directly interfering with it's citizens treatment, and it is all because the government can save a few dimes here and there by inevitably offering people lesser treatment. There is a reason the blue pill is cheaper.

Lastly, under Obamacare tax payers will be paying for others' abortions. I don't want to start an "abortion is wrong" debate here, but for the sake of this debate let's say that it is legal and okay. If someone doesn't feel they want the child, then that said person should be paying for their own choice. Taxpayer paid abortions may cost us billions of dollars. No one should have to pay for another's choice, barring certain circumstances (rape, etc.)

Overall, all Obamacare will do is cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars and give subpar care to those that can't afford it. It will ruin millions of Americans current plans, let the government interfere with our treatment options, and make taxpaying Americans pay for a decision that doesn't involve them at all. Obamacare is not the bill to solve our current healthcare woes.
