The author questions why the Congressional sponsors of the U.S. National Health Care Act speaking out as strongly on behalf of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare.

He notes how this complexity has created endless opportunities for insurance companies to control the system. He argues that Medicare is simple.
