Murray Rothbard explains it in very simple terms even a democrat could understand.
When people think it's free, they use it all the time, the claims then have no ceiling, the cost goes up, and to keep the costs down, care will be denied to people who need it; or the quality of care will drop.
Like it did in the USSR.
He also goes into how the AMA ruined the practice of medicine based on a report a hack named Abraham Flexner who was not a medical professional wrote for the Carnegie Foundation, back in 1910. His report was pre-written for him by the bigwigs in the AMA. Based on this report, the government started regulating medical schools, they turned the regulation over to the AMA, and so medical schools were shut down that admitted women and blacks, and that taught homeopathy, which up until then was respected. The price of medical education skyrocketed, and the cost of going to the doctor did too.
Of course, medical care will NOT be free under Obamacare. Someone has to pay the doctors, and so it will fall on anyone making over $44,000 or thereabouts (4x the poverty guideline as published by the HHS each year) to pay for the medical care of anyone making under $44,000. It also creates a big penalty for being married. If a married couple together makes more than around $47,000 (that's 4x the poverty guideline plus about $3K for each additional person in the family) they will still have to pay. So this will create a lot of fake divorces, or it will keep people from marrying who otherwise would have wanted to. It will induce people to keep their official income under $44,000 as well. That's around $21 or $22 per hour for a 40 hour work week.
These figures are rounded off, if you want to know the exact figures I think I have a recent previous post with a link to something that will tell you.
