United Healthcare expects to lose over $1 billion on Obamacare in 2015 and 2016 -- and other insurers are bracing for big losses too. What do you think: Is Obama's signature law a failure?

UnitedHealth expects to lose $1 billion on Obamacare in 2015 and 2016 combined. Preventative care and disease management programs might help to stem the damage. But it could already be too late. Some insurers are questioning whether they’ll be able to remain in the system. And if Obamacare fails, tens of millions of Americans will be without health coverage. Can Obamacare be as effective as the administration promised? Or has Obamacare already run itself into the ground?
