Since Obamacare was signed into law more than 3 years ago, and I'm sure the legislation was well intended, perhaps it's time to look at the RESULTS.
According to a recent Gallup poll (link below), we now have about 5,000,000 FEWER people covered by health insurance than in 2008.
DETAILS - There are approximately 240 million people in the working age group in America (age 18+), and in 2008, 14.8% (35.52 million) of them had no health insurance.
In 2012, 16.9% (40.56 million) of them had no health insurance, which means that Obamacare has led to more than 5 million FEWER people with health insurance. Unfortunately, the same poll indicates that 11.3 million Americans who previously had health insurance provided through their employers have LOST that insurance - most likely because of the big cost increases mandated by Obamacare, and they have had to find more costly individual insurance.

Oh, and by the way - The extra COST of Obamacare to the taxpayers is now estimated to be $1.76 Trillion, according to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office - link below;
And on top of that, the claim that it would 'lower overall health care costs' also appears to be in tatters, since the cost of health care has increased from $2.3 Trillion per year in 2008 to over $3 Trillion per year in 2012 – an increase of $700 Billion per year (more than 30%).
While it may have been well intentioned, it has turned into yet another hugely costly entitlement BOONDOGGLE.
