Obamacare was designed to stop further inflation of supplies and services of a greatly needed service. We wouldn’t want all the hospitals to default in bankruptcy would we?
Imagine if you will: millions upon millions of people requiring healthcare without insurance or a stable job to pay for healthcare right after the housing market collapse… and the debt it incurred.
It was not designed to be permanent. It was merely a bandaid (pun unintended).
Thus, the push for Medicare for All.
