Neither Protective Nor Affordable

The "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" does not protect patients, nor does it lower costs, as government intervention (price controls, bureaucratic rationing, and unconstitutional mandates) would only be endorsed by someone completely economically ignorant.

Even two progressives such as David Paterson and Michael Bloomberg did not support this ill-conceived and outright irresponsible legislation, as shown in Reason Magazine:

At the tail end of December 2009, as negotiations on the final Senate version of the health care overhaul were being completed, David Paterson, the Democratic governor of New York, held a joint press conference with independent New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg in which they declared their unified opposition to ObamaCare. The legislation, they warned, would cost the state $1 billion, threaten the continued operation of many hospitals and nursing homes, and force the city to close 100 clinics. Bloomberg told the New York Daily News the law was “a disgrace.” A bitter Paterson groused that he felt like his state was being “punished.”
