For Those Still Opposed to "Obamacare"

For those Americans still so opposed to "Obamacare", and crying "big government" over the supreme court's decision to uphold the 2010 Affordable Care Act:

It seems to me that some Americans want an America the Free where we let the sick go uncured, where we let the injured go untreated, where we let those without insurance die of treatable, curable conditions.

The rest of the civilized world doesn't seem to have a problem with universal health coverage. Why does a certain segment of the good ol' USA have such a problem with it?

"Obamacare" doesn't nearly do enough, it's far from perfect, but it's apparently the best we get here in the USA. I'm starting to think that there are a number of Americans who don't really give a damn about other Americans. Perhaps selfishness isn't restricted to the very rich in this country. Perhaps selfishness is endemic in the USA as a whole.
