The "Affordable Care Act" was never intended make health care "affordable," nor make it "more available." It was designed from the very beginning to make providing care more expensive and less available, in order to force all health care to be "provided" by the government. By increasing costs on both the consumer and the insurance companies, who will be forced to charge MUCH higher premiums, the idea being to eventually push the insurance companies out of business while directing people to demand "health care" from the government.

In other words, the only solution for the disaster caused by AHCA, will be a single payer plan implemented by the government, for the common good, of course.
What a bunch of....

That is the intended consequence, and socialists like Nancy Pelosi and Barack Hussein Obama think that the outcome will be a Cadillac health plan for everyone - and the mandatory equality between rich and poor throughout the United States that they dream of.
In a sense they're right. Everyone will have a Government Motors health plan that does less than today's emergency room visits do for those without insurance. More of us will be poor. And the rich? The wealthy will count on health tourism, traveling to a country that permits doctors to charge what the best possible care is worth, a country that will attract the best physicians and provide the best medical care in the world. The United States used to be that country, but within a decade we'll have something at the level of the British NHS complete with formal death panels and informal death by neglect. Everyone will lose under ObamaCare - no winners at all if that monstrosity is fully implemented. And then we can replace it with something even worse!
