The only people who will have it significantly worse under Obamacare are the free riders who currently have de facto health insurance without paying for it. Although in the long run they may be better off as well for not having to go bankrupt over medical bills.
If the Republicans had implemented the ACA as an alternative to single-payer - as they proposed to in 1994 when the Heritage Foundation came up with the idea as a solution to the free rider problem - we'd call it Newtcare, and most of you on this forum would be fine with it.
