I'm not really a conspiracy butt, and I think you are probably right, keeping in mind Napoleon's dictum "Never ascribe to malice that which can be satisfactorily explained by incompetence".
But it almost seems as if this plan is a stalking horse for single payer (socialized) medicine; yeah, let's come up with something so arcane and confusing that we can say "see we tried but we have to go with a socialist plan now because the 'free marked' didn't work" The sad fact is, that EVERYONE wants state of the art, cost is no object medicine, technologies and drugs that didn't even exist a few years ago - health care for themselves and their loved ones, and dammit, who pays for it (or what societal modifications must be made) does not matter when it's my mom, wife or kid.
The vast majority of complaints I hear about the plan is the fact that it has choices. It's not as much confusing as it requires you to make a decision. This generation was raised on avoiding decisions.

(If you aren't part of the solution, there is good money to be made prolonging the problem.)
