The one thing that stuck out for me was this ..
Ten Year Increase in Medicare Spending = 105.3 Billion
Ten year Increase in Medicare Saving = 533.1 Billion
I'm no mathematician but it looks like we're going to save more money over the next ten years than we'd be spending on healthcare.

Obamacare includes the largest middle-class tax cut for health care in history. According to the independent Congressional Budget Office, 19 million people will receive tax credits worth an average of about $4,800 each to help them afford health care.

If you can afford medical insurance but you choose not to then you get hit with a tax. That tax pays for healthcare for the people who can't afford it.
Romney did the SAME thing in Massachusetts

And FYI, you're small business will not be effected unless you employ 50 or more people. Fox news even said this, only about 4% of small businesses will be effected by this "penalty" tax.
