Obamcare = Worsecare

Dr. Marc Siegel is no fan of Obamacare:
At the heart of the multi-headed abominable creature known as Affordable Care Act aka ObamaCare, there resides a singular deceit. It is too easy for lawyers and even U.S. Supreme Court Justices to miss this deceit in the process of arguing abstractions, but I and other doctors experience this reality every day our offices: 
Insurance does not equal care. One patient’s needs can get in the way of another’s needs. My waiting room is like so many others in America, and when it is clogged with several patients with low-paying highly-regulated insurance, the waiting time goes up and the access to quality medical care goes down.

Sounds like Seigel Doesn't want Chevy's in his parking lot, just the Lexus crowd. Sounds a little like "class warfare" Uhoh was that political? Then I'm in the right blog!

The Dr. writes "If there is a public health care need then let's get our government to provide for it directly." I agree with that. But when something like that is proposed, conservatives start screaming Socialism. What's a President to do?

Gil - Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the individual mandate originaly developed by conservative economist Mark Pauly? Didn't Republicans propose the individual mandate when Clinton was President? Wasn't it the cornerstone of Romneys plan in 05?
Why, now that it's part of Obama care, is it suddenly wrong?
