The article argues that the ObamaCare health care policy of U.S. President Barack Obama's administration will not help Americans afford quality health care, but will actually make it more difficult for them to do so. According to the author, the policy will also increase the already high costs of health insurance and care. He asserts that the solution is to remove all government programs, including Medicare, to prevent the distortion of health care markets and to create a system characterized by a patient-centric free market.
