There's a good purpose for wrecking private insurance markets?
Private insurance companies wrote most of the bill. It boggles my mind how so many people fail to accept that. Let's peek at their stock prices today (I know, Wall Street perception isn't "proof," but it's quick and dirty for now.)
On and on. It's like this every day. Is there risk? Sure there is, but it was a calculated risk by the insurance companies all along and it has been, thus far, pretty damn good for them. They sure as hell don't want single payer, and since they are the top lobbyists in Washington (#1 or #2 anyway), I can't see that happening anytime soon.

In general, I still prefer free markets to government control.

Look like the Dutch system. Four players that cornered around 80% of the market. Stifled competition and prices are around the same regardless of the company.

Obamacare is a profit machine for the insurance companies. They’ll be collecting government force premiums but not have to pay out anything because of the high deductibles.
