The promise of the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) was to lower health care costs and increase accessibility. High costs and less accessibility claimed lives as people had to make tough choices and were denied expensive care. Thus Liberals proclaimed no one had a moral case to oppose Obamacare. This argument demonstrates that Liberals understand the connection between high costs and suffering/premature death.
We Conservatives pointed to history, common sense, and mathematics arguing that Obamacare, being a collectivization of the health care system, would create resource scarcity and actually drive up the cost of care/decrease accessibility. We were called racists, bigots, homophobes, and sexists. We were told we hated women and children.
Well, we were right. And we don't hate women, children, minorities, gays, or any other identity group--in fact Obamacare will prove to disproportionately damage those groups (and we warned about this too)!
