Wall Street Journal gives us a firsthand view of what Obamacare is and how the Massachusetts example should concern every citizen in the United states, being Obamacare is, in their words "essentially identical."

You will have to read the entire piece to get the details of what of why the plan was not sustainable to begin with and how politics has made it worse, but one specific paragraph truly says it all:

The deeper problem is that price controls seem to be the only way the political class can salvage a program that was supposed to reduce spending and manifestly has not. Massachusetts now has the highest average premiums in the nation.

There is the future of Obamacare and why ordinary American citizens, by 60 percent, prefer repealing Obamacare.

Sixty percent (60%) of voters nationwide favor repeal of the recently passed health care law, including 49% who Strongly Favor repeal.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 36% oppose repeal. That figure includes 24% who are Strongly Opposed.

Forty-three percent (43%) believe repeal would be good for the nation’s economy. Twenty-seven percent (27%) believe repeal would be bad for the economy, while 20% say it would have no impact. Political Class voters strongly believe repeal would be bad for the economy, while most Mainstream Americans think repeal would help the economy.
