I don't see that your chart answers the question at all.

As the US takes over more and more of health care (regardless of whether Obamacare had passed), it will be forced to contain costs. Eventually, the adoption of a health care system similar to Canada, Germany or France is inevitable. Obamacare was just the first but necessary step along the way.

The earlier we adopt a single payer system similar to Canada the better off we will be as a country, and the less we will have to spend for healthcare when we do it. However, there are many vested and well funded interests that must be overcome, not to mention sheer ignorance.
