The Affordable Care Act limits insurance premiums and mandates personal coverage. It's basically identical to RomneyCare, enacted by Mitt Romney in 2006.
The mandate was originally proposed in the 1990s by Newt Gingrich and the Heritage Foundation, as a free market response against Hillary Clinton's plan.
ObamaCare is RomneyCare.
ProTip: If it's based on for-profit insurance companies, it's not "socialized medicine".
