The real issue, which congress doesn't seem to want to touch, is reigning in insurance company and drug company profit margins, as well as medical industry overpricing. Why do they do this? Perhaps the money's too good in the boys club. Who can say? ;)...until then we'll have unsatisfactory replacements like this, including the outstanding troubles of the ACA, which basically have to make up for these unregulated areas through heavy taxation and federal dollars. What a pity. How about we start by getting private influential moneys out of politics? Then, perhaps we can accomplish amazing things for the people.
