The Obamacare plan is just more elegant than mine.

Sounds like a "Mad Max" sequel.
As cruel as it sounds, that should be the alternative. I am so sick and tired of my health insurance cost going up to pay for those people who don't have any insurance and just go to the ER for basic medical care. (The most expensive way to obtain it)
The mandate for everyone to carry insurance is unpopular with the right wing, but the things they like about "Obamacare" , is only made possible by a larger pool of healthier people (like young people etc)
I would ONLY be in favor of repeal of the Obama health care (really insurance reform), on condition that they remove the requirement for hospitals to treat everybody regardless of their ability to pay. If they ain't got the money to pay (remember this could be tens of thousands of dollars) , or insurance to pay, then screw them; they will either get better or die.
