I don't see where that reasoning comes from. Your health care expenses will not fall. If they do it will be because we're paying more taxes to subsidize it, so it will be a wash if we're lucky.

The big pharma and insurance companies just see a bigger deeper well to dip from, so it will do nothing to bring down the cost of health care, it will make it worse, wait and see. Until they rein them in nothing will change. All of this effort should be going towards that goal, but that change would be stepping on too many toes and require real leadership, not this dog and pony popularity show for votes this fall that we have going on now.
