We are already spending way too much money on way to many things the Gov. should not be involved in

As far as I know, the goal of this health legislation is to lower costs. Check out this chart


where the US is spending 16%, the most, on healthcare costs as a percentage to GDP. If it was possible to lower that by 5% the savings would be enormous and the legislators know that.
I would hope this is an unloading of bricks for all Americans.
