Obamacare: What’s in it for you?

Features Robert Downes Tea Party radicals in the Republican Congress -- who have no alternative plan for health care whatsoever -- have framed Obamacare as an unworkable mess, even treasonous. But the nuts & bolts of the plan were created by former presidential candidate Mitt Romney during his tenure as governor of Massachusetts from 2003-2007.
