7. People who don't understand the economics of the business

A lot of people really thought this wouldn't happen much. Instead it is going to happen to millions, perhaps even 15 or 20 million employees, over the course of 2013/2014.

And then what happens to people like her? The individual mandate is going to kick in for a lot of these people, who won't be able to afford to buy insurance that is useful, but will now be subject to fines.

It was always wishful thinking - a giveaway to the higher-paid workers in the US who would pay more under a single-payer system. That is the only way to get real health coverage, though.
