What if you took "private insurance companies" out of the equation? It would be a different argument, for certain.

Personally, it seems like the individual mandate was the unpopular piece forced into the bill by big pharma.
And who gives a sh*t if coverage is provided through an employer or through an insurance exchange, so long as everyone is covered and rates are reasonable? If employers stop providing coverage they will raise wages. There is no free lunch.

This also begs the question: why are you so easy to forgive clear corruption?!?
