Has anyone figured out that those wonderful subsidies are actually tax dollars that come from all of us? Where has the federal government provided any service that is cost effective and gets the job done?

This is such a farce. If you want to keep your coverage you can't, if you like your doctor you won't be able to keep them. Prices will go up, care probably won't be any better. The "haves" will pay more, the "have nots" will be the free rides.
