No, it's not the plan. The plan is to force the entire nation into a government healthcare program, drive insurance companies out of business, and control 1/6th of the economy, even if healthcare research and actual care suffer mightily.

This has nothing to do with taking care of people, and everything to do with absolute power over them.
