    Advantages - more people insured - whether they like it or not.
    Disadvantages - Overcrowded hospitals and clinics, longer wait for much needed medical services, higher costs to all Americans. Just to name a few.

    Drives up the cost of health insurance higher through more mandates
    Killed most of the private health insurance market
    The government can decide you don't get treatment due to age
    Illegal immigrants still don't have to pay for insurance while getting care for free.
    If the government decides you don't get care, you don't have the right to appeal.
    Because doctors are paid less for care, more of them are leaving the profession.
    Limiting the expansion of hospitals and private health facilities will constrain the supply of new hospital beds even as the population ages.
    Higher taxes, which are bad when a country is already in a recession

    It makes some people feel good for having acted in a way they thought was compassionate, regardless of the consequences contrary to their intentions.
