Congrats, but whether you understand it yet or not you've just made the lives of the worker bees that do all the work worse.
Health care costs were already rising. ACA incentivizes carrying insurance from private companies, allows people with pre-existing conditions to get affordable insurance, and designs state markets that allow consumers to have more information and help curb the costs of insurance plans.

The design of the act is market-driven, whether you understand that or not.
