If the law was changed so that the government paid all costs, would there still be such strong objection to it and a constitutional challenge?

@gollum,
as an outsider i'm saying yes, it smacks to much of socialism for most americans, the US seems to fear the "ism's"

@gollum,
You really really really don't understand the conservative objections to Obamacare don't you??

Republicans (AKA political naives, corporate lackies/accomplices, and assorted goofballs) don't want government to pay for anything. If government paid for all costs, their objections would increase a thousand fold rather then disappear.

@tsarstepan,
You may be right.

Presently, the government pays for many programs that are of dubious value. There is little objection to that.

@tsarstepan,
I'm not sure you are right, if you are speaking of all conservatives. Might make a difference in how it was written, and what you mean by "all costs".

@roger,
I, of course, am generalizing with that (albeit) very cynical and bitter statement.
