Obamacare: Already screwing things up

So, you thought that Obamacare would get you out from under the thumb of the insurance companies? Guess again.
Here is a story ("No, you can't keep your health care plan.")
about the negative impacts that Obamacare, barely out of the gate, is having on the health care system. One example:


To implement this strategy, companies need to be able to exert more control over doctors. So insurers are trying to buy up medical clinics and doctor practices. Where they can't own providers outright, they'll maintain smaller "networks" of physicians that they will contract with so they can manage doctors more closely. That means even fewer choices for beneficiaries. Insurers hope that owning providers will enable health policies to offset the cost of the new regulations.
