    And it isn't what most of us hoped for.  In fact the will of the American people was denied. In poll after poll, a strong majority of us consistently said we wanted (still do) a real (not fake) public option at the very least (and that was a huge compromise on our part).  We didn't even get that.  Instead we got the biggest piece of corporate welfare pork at our expense ever passed over on a misinformed and misled public.  PPACA was literally written by the health insurance industry for its benefit including every loophole it could possibly want to make every "protection" for us virtually meaningless.  It is analogous to letting ther KKK write Civil Rights reform.
