Turn ACA into product

I think I have solved the problem of Obamacare. The proponents of the program should form a health care company and sell one product, Obamacare. Funding such a company wouldn’t be hard as George Soros, The Clinton Foundation and, of course, the Hollywood “intelligentsia” have millions if not billions of dollars available that I am sure they would gladly use to fund such an endeavor. But this will never happen.

Why, you ask, would such a “noble” ideal not be brought to life by those who so fervently support it? The answer sadly is really basic and simple. Most of those who want to “save the world” want someone else to pay for creating their ideas. They just want to take the credit for having such “noble” intentions.

To be fair there are examples of individual idealists who use their own money to support and implement their own egalitarian ideals but these are usually at the local individual level not at the “save the world” national level. Perhaps the people that want to “save the world” should be more like these people. They might actually be able to accomplish something other than their personal glorification.
