They should know, they proposed it first - back in 1993. This shows that much of the current bill is identical to a proposal from Republican senators to counter the Clinton era reforms which would have mandated employer coverage for all.

I think Obamacare is good improvement for a first step, but some are going to be very disappointed because it does not guarantee low cost coverage for all. It does make it possible to get insurance. However the cost can be quite a shock since employers have not usually let employees know how much insurance actually costs.
